What I Am Not

People place a great deal of emphasis on what people are and who they are and positive affirmations. I believe just as important, and for me more importantly because of how I am cut, it is valuable for me to declare what or who I am not. I think for me it is easier to behave the way I should by declaring how I am not going to behave. Here is my short list:

I am not evil.

I am not a coward.

I am not afraid.

I am not someone who sees a need and runs off because it is inconvenient for me to help.

I am not selfish.

I am not God and am not worthy of worship and excessive rewards and attention.

I am not a liar.

I am not a cheater.

I am not a thief.

I am not a hater or murderer.

I am not ugly or worthless in any way.

I am not friendless or unwanted.

I am not a judge or jury or unloving.

I am not without compassion.

I am not a jerk or bully.

That is my short list. For those of us who God deemed fit to make with extraordinarily strong and driven personality and will to match, it is often what I refuse to be that drives me to goodness and Godly living. Yes, the positive statements are valuable also, but for me personally, I work better on the flip side. Maybe this helps someone else. I love you! ❤
