Letting go of toxic people. People that are out to hurt you. Jealousy, insecurity, fear…all lead to anger. And Ms. D is not playing that game. Here are my thoughts to my “haters”:
I will not let your anger control me. You anger is exactly that – your anger. I am sorry you see me as a threat. I am not against you. I pray for you. I want the best for you – even of you don’t. I will not enter your arena of gossip and bad mouthing. I am not interested.
My lesson, – live and let live. I love you enough to let you be fully responsible for your actions. Gossip kills. Back- biting kills. And every time you gossip to me about someone else – I know you are gossiping about me behind my back.
I am making a new choice. I cannot trust you with my life anymore. You do not value me or my life. You make fun of me and my family while you sit on your pedestal.
I forgive you. But I am not sharing my life with you anymore. You have shamed my children and me. There is no condemnation in Christ Jesus. I reject your inference that I am not right in the heart, and that I am not right with God. You don’t get a say. My relationship with God is my relationship, not yours. And who gave you the right to bad mouth and shame my kids?
You have no idea what my life is like. And the sad part is, I know you don’t really care. Take your self -righteous attitude, your big mouth, your pride and arrogance, and just keep it to yourself. I am not playing. I am not interested. You are not my friend, so stop pretending.
Yes, I have had enough. Forgive my rant. Can we just be real? Friends don’t do that. So stop calling me that.
[The] women likewise must be worthy of respect and serious, not gossipers, but temperate and self-controlled, [thoroughly] trustworthy in all things. (1 Timothy 3:11 AMP)

Amen, I believe someone came up with a plaque for this ” The Serenity Prayer”. Don’t let anyone outside of Jesus Christ affect your value to the kingdom!
Amen Jeff. I love the whole prayer, it’s sad that so many people use only part of it…
The Serenity Prayer
The full text of the original “Serenity Prayer” written by Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
GOD, grant me the serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change,
Courage to change the
things I can, and the
wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship as the
pathway to peace.
Taking, as He did, this
sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it.
Trusting that He will make
all things right if I
surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy
in this life, and supremely
happy with Him forever in
NOTE: This is the full prayer attributed to Karl Paul Reinhold Niebuhr reportedly written in 1926. Niebuhr was a Lutheran pastor and theologian. Usually his “Serenity Prayer” is quoted using the first 2 verses only.
Thats better than I thought, thanks for the whole story and I believe I know who you’re referencing 😉
That’s very good, thanks, think I know who we talking about 😉
The only thing I can say is Amen. Very true words to live by. I know, I have had to cut many toxic people out of my life. Because I did my life is so much less stressful
I know, it is so peaceful. I can’t believe what a difference. Thank you Jesus!
Sadly sometimes, it’s even a sister that’s the toxic one to be let go of. Hugs, N 🙂
Thanks Natalie…that’s the part that hurts so much. God bless you too, Diana
