Be Who You Are

September 1915 - Magazineart.org
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. -Dr. Seuss
I found this quote on Twitter and it started the wheels rolling... So often, I see people apologizing for who they are. God will never apologize for His workmanship and neither should we. Granted, our choices can steer us away from the original blueprint, but God takes pleasure in us, and He never loses sight of our Master plan and purpose, even if we do.

We should apologize for our poor choices and/or actions, especially if they adversely affect others. However, who we are is a personal thing between Daddy God and ourselves.


The Dr. Seuss quote (above) is a good affirmation. I would interject that "people" always matter, even if they think "we" don't. It's the inaccurate opinions and judgments that shouldn't matter or dictate to us. People are sometimes blinded by jealousies, insecurities, or a greater interest in themselves.

True friends are those who see us clearly and choose to love us anyway.
