Faith | Stop Being the People Pleaser

Do you ever feel like you are trying to please everyone around you, and you get distracted by the direction that God is trying to take you? We tend to ask God for direction, but then we are caught up in all the things around us. It's so easy to get caught up in what people are saying and lose focus on where God is taking us.

I remember when I was was younger, I cared so much about what people think. Basically I would dress for them, eat at the times for them and make sure they come first. To me it was natural trying to make people smile. When I got about 14 I realized that they are not the ones I should be pleasing, because in 4 years or even 1 they won't even matter.

Being concerned about people and what they think can take you to another spot in life from where God is trying to take you. Letting the wrong people in because it feels right, listening to negative talk or even comparing yourself to everyone around you (which I use to do a lot!) is what gets you off track on your path. I now see you can not concentrate on peoples thoughts of you, because now I look at like if you're not going to benefit me or help me in any way whether it's helping me become successful or just care for me, then honestly I don't need you in my life. I try to focus on pleasing GOD, because in the end that's all that really matters.
