Thank you so much.
Some of the people who were important to me, said negative things about me. Though I knew it wasn't true (what they said reflected their own problems), I found myself wondering if I was wrong, repeating their words. And by doing that, their words started to be self-fullfilling prophecies.
I didn't know how to stop these words from popping up in my head.
You gave me the sollution: if words do not better my relationship with G'd (or worse: ruin it), they are not worth repeating. Thank you so much. Reply
