Everyone has a different version of us in their eyes and their hearts.
To your boss at work, perhaps you are smart calculated and well-dressed. To your friends, maybe you have a nice car, a nice house and your kids go to a nice school. To you partner, perhaps you are too quiet, you work too much, you’re always tired…
We have multiple versions of ourselves floating around in the minds of others, but at the end of the day, we need to decide what we want to look like.
Do we want to be the person who cared more about their clothes, than clothing the poor?
Do you want to be the person who had a nice car, or the person who helped someone who’s car broke down on the side of the road when everyone else just drove past?
Do you want to go to a church that preaches about ‘loving thy neighbour’, but not a single person in the pews would look twice at a homeless person on the street?
Who we want to be is a direct reflection of what we will be, in the minds of the people around us.
