Do You Really Wanna Be Accepted? 


We all crave for love and attention. Be honest, it’s a great feeling when we get 100 likes on that picture we posted on instagram! Knowing that people like us and accept us makes us feel like we’re a part of something. Who doesn’t want to feel accepted?! BUT, if you knew the price of acceptance, would you still wanna be accepted? One of my youth pastors asked me a question Sunday. He said, “Do you want what you want, and you get what you get, and then discover the price you have to pay for it?” We want to be accepted so bad that we begin to change ourselves for other people’s liking. We conform to society and soon become another stereotype. We often want acceptance, but we don’t realize all that comes with the price. We lose who God truly made us to be. Once you lose yourself, you lose god. You’re made in his image. You are not of this world, so don’t expect for this world to love you. Being accepted will only be a temporary high, but the damage it leaves behind will leave you low. If you really wanna be accepted..accept you! It’s the first step to loving yourself!
Love,
Shanti
P.S. Don’t forget to tell yourself “Love You Self”

One thought on “Do You Really Wanna Be Accepted? 

  1. Completely agree! Romans 12:2 says it best: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
