Have enough self love to Go Where You’re Celebrated, Not Where You’re Tolerated
The Hardest Walk is Walking Alone, but it’s Also the Walk that Makes you the Strongest | Disciple John
By Disciple John
I dont know who needs to see this, but…
Sometimes, for your best self interest, its best to simply walk away…
Have enough self respect to leave people who do not appreciate you…
Have enough self love to Go Where You’re Celebrated, Not Where You’re Tolerated…
If you were aware how God sees you and loves you, and if you knew the image of God you’re made in, you could never feel bad, lonely or sad. If you’re in bad company, you see yourself through dirty lens of someone who doesn’t see you as you are.
To know yourself, you must be alone, to get to know yourself, by yourself, for yourself…
If you’re feeling bad, lonely, unappreciated, unhappy and generally low – stop wasting your time, energy, and attention with the wrong people who do not see your light, beauty and awesomeness. Great mind being in company of small minds, will get drained…~dj
I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.
It’s better to walk alone, than with a crowd going in the wrong direction. ~Diane Grant
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers.
~ Psalm 1:1
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
~ Proverbs 13:20
To be of good quality, you have to excuse yourself from the presence of shallow and callow minded individuals.
Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.
Bad company ruins good morals.
Paul the Apostle
Avoid sloth, bad company, dangerous conversations, and games; remembering that time passes and never returns, that you have a soul, and that if you lose your soul, you lose all.
Leonard of Port Maurice
There is no better game in the world when you are in good company, and no worse game when you are in bad company.
Bad company is like a nail driven into a post, which, after the first and second blow, may be drawn out with little difficulty; but being once driven up to the head, the pincers cannot take hold to draw it out, but which can only be done by the destruction of the wood.
If I had to advise parents, I should tell them to take great care about the people with whom their children associate . . . Much harm may result from bad company, and we are inclined by nature to follow what is worse than what is better.
Elizabeth Ann Seton
An honest heart is not to be trusted with itself in bad company.
Vulgarism in language is the distinguishing characteristic of bad company, and a bad education. A man of fashion avoids nothing with more care than that. Proverbial expressions, and trite sayings, are the flowers of the rhetoric of vulgar man.
Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.
What the expression is intended to mean, I think, is that there is a better and a worse element in the character of each individual, and that when the naturally better element controls the worse then the man is said to be “master of himself”, as a term of praise. But when – as a result of bad upbringing or bad company one s better element is overpowered by the numerical superiority of one s worse impulses, then one is criticized for not being master of oneself and for lack of self control.
