Two Sides of the Same Coin

Scrolling through the daily feed on my Facebook page I noticed several articles about the same events. Because I have a diverse group of friends the links that many of my friends shared were opposing sides of the same story. One event and two groups of people saw it completely different.

That reminds me very clearly. Some people love you. Some people hate you.

It doesn’t seem to matter what you are doing or what you are going to do. There will be people who stand beside you. There will be people who stand opposed to you.

One group will bring you joy and the other will bring you grief.
One group sees the best in you and the other sees the worst.
One group inspires you and the other discourages you.
One group energizes your day and the other sucks the life out of you.

Which of those groups is going to occupy your mind today?

Will your day, your week, your month or your year be occupied with trying to please people who really don’t care for you? Will your critics win your heart by their negative comments? Will you spend countless hours replaying your successes or your failures?

Honestly, the choice is up to you. Choose wisely.
