At some points in our lives we encounter people who are not who they say they are. Some are double-faced aristocrats; while there are those who are self-centered and egoistic hypocrites.
May BFF “kuno” pero once you turn your back on them they immediately change into your worst enemy. This person is capable of quickly wearing and removing their mask. His/her strength lies on luring you until you fall into his/her trap. Just pray. With God’s strength, you can either turn the predator into your prey or you can simply discourage and make them turn away from their evil plans.
May mga “echosera” man. These people will always praise you for your new hairstyle, new phone, unique fashion sense, etc. Take note, they will be the first in line to notice whatever is new in your life; although sometimes they can be the last to notice the good but the first to notice the bad. Be extra careful with these people. It’s possible that their praises go with envy! Although that’s no longer your problem, saying “mamatay ka sa inggit” won’t be enough. Remember that some people’s envy can have so much power in it that you might feel it or get affected by it in one way or another. Again, just pray. With God’s strength, your prayers can enlighten these people’s minds.
May mga “imbyerna kings/queens” din. It’s either ikaw maiimbyerna sa kanila or sila imbyerna sa yo. Without you doing anything bad against them, they just don’t like you. It’s possible that it can happen the other way around. Again, just pray. Couple that acceptance. With God’s strength, respect for individual differences can happen.
May mga “trayntadiora” din 🙂 These people are like perfect combinations of the kinds of people mentioned above. No matter what you do, they have their eyes on you. One wrong move, especially against them, you’re dead! No matter how you explain yourself, they will just look at the bad side and take it against you. Watch out, today you have only one person as your enemy, the next thing you know, isang buong barangay na 🙂 Brrrr scary…As always, just pray. As long as God knows the truth, you don’t owe anybody an explanation.
I’m sure you can think of many other types of characters and behaviors. What I have listed above are the ones I’ve personally encountered. Bato-bato sa langit, ang tamaan…magbago na kayo please.
These people serve as spices in our life. They bring “extra challenge” to our everyday undertakings. It isn’t worth stooping down to their level. You can respond back, you may explain, you can justify. But NEVER resort to revenge by doing the same or even worst to anybody who inflicted pain on you. Remember, only feeble minds take pleasure in revenge.
Romans12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
People can judge us any time they like, in whatever way they want. Be it good or bad, you don’t have to worry about it as long as you know yourself better than they do. Keep doing what’s right. Soon enough these people will just get tired of doing everything they could to bring you down. Don’t pray for them to leave you alone, rather, pray for them to put a full stop into their evil acts.
These people are like hollow blocks – they appear hard from the outside but empty from the inside. Don’t be like them. God gave us the spirit of fear but of power and of love, and of a sound mind so that we will know how to act and think whenever we’re faced with these people. HIS power/wisdom can make us withstand all evil.
2 Peter 1:6-8
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.
Naks naman parang hindi ako 😀 Sobrang holy naman ng post na to. Yaan nyo na. Minsan lang to 😉
