People Will Try To Take Away Your Joy. They Will Do Everything In Their Power To Make You Feel Miserable And Worthless. DO. NOT. LET. THEM!

   

When Joy Thomas, a plus-sized vlogger, shared her wedding pictures online, she got many well wishes as well as bad comments. Prior to that time, Joy would have been disturbed by the trolls but she had grown into a confident woman, who gives no thought what people think about her.

That experience had taught her a lesson and she is willing to share it with other women.

She wrote,

I remember being so happy and excited about my wedding day and how beautiful I felt. When my husband first saw me in my wedding attire he couldn’t take his eyes off of me. He couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful and amazing I looked.. it was such a magical moment for the both of us.

Once we posted our pictures for our family and friends. So many people were so happy for us! Then there were those folks that wanted to let me know just how much a fat girl did not deserve this kind of happiness so they tried their hardest to take it away.

People will try to take away your joy. They will try to disturb your peace. They will do everything in their power to make you feel miserable and worthless. DO. NOT. LET. THEM! For so long I let people dictate my every move and decisions! I let what people thought or said about me affect how I viewed myself. At one point I felt like I didn’t deserve to feel beautiful. I didn’t deserve to be loved. I didn’t deserve to pursue my dreams. Oh, how wrong I was!

I’m so happy I’m constantly being reminded of who God says I am! I am fearfully and wonderfully made!

Sis, PURUSE YOUR DREAMS. WRITE THAT BOOK. START THAT BUSINESS and continue to know and remind yourself that you are loved, you are so important, you are BEAUTIFUL in so many ways, and you are needed! Let today be the day that you stop letting people who don’t matter hold you back!
