Recreate your narrative
we hear people say all the time not to listen to what others are saying about you. 🙉 well, i think this well-intentioned advice can be potentially harmful.
have you ever had someone in your life who will not stop attacking you? perhaps a friend or family. you may even be in love with this person. you hope that they will stop attacking your life. unfortunately, attackers usually don't stop. and when it does not stop a breaking point is reached.
it's the point at which you are finally fed up with being attacked and you will not tolerate any more. sometimes drastic measures have to be taken. perhaps in your breaking 💔 you may even do something you would not have done otherwise. you get pushed and pushed and you become someone inside that you are not.
do not let someone continue to verbally attack you. and whatever you do, do not think for one second that what this person is saying to you is not having an impact on you. 🤯 especially if they are building a false narrative about you.
the bible teaches us to warn before destruction. so warn your attacker and if it does not stop then expose them. those who recklessly attack people are going to inevitable face destruction if they do not stop what they are doing.
it's not about not being strong enough to deal with what they are saying to you, but more about being exhausted with it. stand up for yourself. end your relationship with this person. protect your heart. and recreate your narrative.
