Me: That is normal, don’t panic. We all encounter all sort of people in life, surely you too; people who are encouraging, inspiring, people who would lift you up. Other people who gonna shake your heart, and endeavor to tease you every time you see them. The former are surely blessings from God you may think, good people are always needed , and a loving God bless us with them being part of our lives. and the latter too.
Him: Give me a break, how in the world, those latter sort of people be blessings, where is God in having them in our lives? Teasing us, and stealing our merriness, can’t you understand all the annoyance they are causing for me?
Me: Issues are not always found in people around us only, in fact there are issues in every living creature, so try to figure out what are your issues first before criticizing other people’s issues, remember tha is a biblical principle.
Him: I know I have issues , but not like them indeed, they are annoying people.
Me: Knowing your issues will help you not to grow as a criticizing grown up, who tends to judge others rather than caring about them. The second thing you should try is to focus on God, and His purpose in your life , than focusing on others. Don’t care much about what people would say, or what they think of you, esp. mocking guys, because mocking people are not to shape or engrave your life, but God should be the one who do so.
Thus don’t let them be your “god’ , and don’t submit to their teasing pressure . Remember when Moses cared about what people would say in so far, he upset God, and if Jesus had cared that far , he would have abandoned the cross, and failed to accomplish the plan of salvation . Therefore don’t worry , conquer your anger, depression and fears, people are not that perfect, and also not that bad, don’t expect too much from them but care about them, hold to God, and stand on His promises , believe His word, figure out His good plans for your life , among good, and not-good people.
