If someone tries to put you down, lift yourself up above them because they have the problem. God loves you for who you are. If they can’t lift you up, then define who has the problem. It is not you. Learn from this. Do not put others down. It can be contagious. That is where bullying begins. It is a learned behavior thinking that you are better than someone else and finding pleasure in hurting others. A person who continually puts others down has a sickness that only they can cure. Love yourself unconditionally and love your fellow man. Defining who has ownership of the problem often makes your life a little simpler. We can’t be all things to all people. Be true to yourself.
