Now wait a second girl, don’t do it. Don’t clap back! Friend, allow me to encourage you for a moment because I know you need to hear this. NEVER let the opinion of others to break you even if it’s from someone close to you like a friend, spouse or sibling. You have a journey to ride and you don’t need intentional bumps in the road to slow you down.
Trust and believe that you can count on someone or a group of people designated and perhaps dedicated to show up in the middle of your progress and stomp all over you. While there are multiple ways one can clap back to the frustration, your time is far too valuable. So don’t clap back at haters.
“Birds fly, fishes swim, and haters hate.”
It’s just what they do! It’s their native language, culture and it eventually becomes part of their character. Nay sayers, back stabbers, haters… how ever you refer to them, understand it’s just what they do. When they begin to talk down on you and your progress, don’t clap back at the haters, breathe, let go and let God, and keep it moving. There’s work to be done.
You are the co-producer of your story. The boss, chief and editor at large is God himself. He’s blessed you with that dream and His expectation is not only to see how well you handle the opposition, but most importantly how well you remain faithful and focused on Him and in what He’s handed to you.
To those who don’t hear it enough or at all, let me be one to say…
You are more than enough! God had a plan for you before anyone had an opinion. Just because you see no progress doesn’t mean there is no progress. Take your time – the blessing has already been assigned to you and no weapon formed against you shall prosper. What God has for you IS for you and He IS with you. Be bold, brave, courageous and trust the process.
