Task #20 for the Single Ladies
There was time in my life, a moment in which I had to learn to stop being a toilet.
That’s right, a toilet!
Think with me, what is a toilet used for?
To dispose that which is not of use inside us: vomit, number 1 and number 2.
And do you know what these things have in common?
They all smell badly!
So, one day I realized that I had become a toilet where people disposed all that was rotten inside of them.
They would come and make negative comments about other people, gossip and speak wrongfully.
That affected me greatly, for I began to have bad eyes towards people. Many times I didn’t even know that person, but if someone came and said something about them, I wouldn’t even think twice before looking at them with negative eyes.
I realized that all of the filth that was being poured onto me was beginning to make me “stink.”
I thought “I’m becoming weak in my faith due to these things, but what should I do?!”
How about you my friend, have you been a toilet? Are you also stinky?
Here go some tips to help you to avoid this…
Avoid establishing a friendship with gossipers.
When a “friend” begins to make negative comments about another person, before she even starts, stop her. Tell her that it isn’t right and you don’t want to hear it.
In certain cases when you perceive rebellious comments against an authority, don’t think twice. Denounce that person even if she is your best friend. She is not well and needs help.
After some time I obtained a certain reputation as being strict and as a consequence the gossip and evil comments stopped!
You know what else?
I couldn’t care less about such a reputation!
Many times when I was an assistant, if I entered the room the conversation ended.
The other day someone told me that the same thing was happening to her and do you know what my response was?
Now, no one will make a toilet of you!
You can always smell nicely!
