There are many facets to life that many of us don't know about. On my column I give my personal views from real life experiences, sound advice on daily obstacles, and I write out lessons I've learned on my personal journey.
Everybody nowadays says they want wholesome friendships or at least they just like to ponder on the thought of it. We compromise many of the morals we initially had to fit into these societal boxes that produce a lot of the deceptive friendships we see today. With deception going around now at a rapid pace it is very important to simply evaluate yourself everyday and think are you being an asset or a liability to the friendships you're in and also evaluate who you're around on a consistent basis. Are they an asset or a liability to you? 1 Corinthians 15:33 says, "Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.”" Most people usually can tell what type of person you are just by the people they may see you hang around. In due time you become whatever you hang around so keep this in mind.
The relationship perception that society has out today is very misleading and can deceive you if you don't already know what a healthy and godly relationship is suppose to look like. 2 Corinthians 6:14 says,"Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness?" Social media has manipulated the minds of people into wanting these celebrity type relationships which in actuality aren't really built on the right foundations in the first place which is why a lot of divorces happen to what we thought were good couples. Most of it is all influenced by money and what type of status you have in the world. Your unconscious mind controls your behavior and also has the power to compromise and influence your judgments and feelings. Don't let emotions which are physical and feelings which are mental get in the way of you choosing the right spouse. God put man on this earth first and the woman(Eve) was brought along out of the rib of the man (Adam) to compliment him. Genesis 2:18 says, "Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” The man is suppose to lead and cultivate whomever he chooses as a spouse.
Quite a few people in today's times tend to run away from taking accountability for their behaviors and mistakes. The quickest getaway for some is to intentionally and also unintentionally pass the blame in order to release the guiltiness that plagues them. But do you ever think about what could happen to the other person? What consequences they may face depending on the situation? As a society we have to get better at owning up to our mistakes and taking accountability for the things we do.
Over the last few years I have made many rough mistakes in life, my decision making, and the things I allowed myself to be influenced by. Nevertheless one thing that I have really come to realize as I've made great changes thus far in my life is that it takes true men and women to own up to their mistakes. People who have no moral guidelines or any sense of godly direction in life will almost always seek to hurt others for fulfillment and not take responsibilities for their actions. Proverbs 28:13 says, "People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy."
Your actions have to prove that you have been grasping what you've been taught in life and by God's word. Anything less is a sign of regression!

Your worth shouldn't be based off of another persons perception of you! God's love establishes true worth because he is our basis for all things!
