BUT if you are applying this to your life because you genuinely want to live by this principle you will be truly blessed. There will always be someone, somewhere who will treat you the same way and do it with a pure heart. Here are four ways to keep push through feeling like you aren’t being treated the same: 1. Pray- I truly pray about everything. I believe that prayer can do things that no one else can.
HOW TO KEEP PUSHING WHEN OTHERS DON’T TREAT YOU LIKE YOU TREAT THEM. Sometimes as women, we love for others to treat us the way that we treat them. What I’ve learned is that this doesn’t always happen. It’s VERY rare that you will have someone that will celebrate with you, encourage you, lift you up and support you the SAME way that you do those things for them. Matthew 7:12 (NET) says In everything, treat others as you would want them to treat you... I always try to apply this to my life. Sometimes I succeed in that and other times I fail miserably. I think that is a part of life. The key to being successful with this practice is to do it from your heart. If the ONLY reason you are treating people like you want to be treated is so you will be treated the same way you will be disappointed.
2. Learn to celebrate yourself: This was a hard one for me. I always celebrated others. I mean I truly felt like (and still feel like) I’m a part of what they are doing. I get excited like it’s ME lol. I felt like when it was my turn I wanted to be celebrated the same way. Everyone doesn’t do things the way I do. I learned to pat MYSELF on the back. Do something special for MYSELF. Probably one of the best things I’ve learned to do. 3. Don’t focus on it. This may be easier said than done but learn not to focus on it. Do something else. Quit expecting that phone call or text message. You will be disappointed and hurt. It’s not worth it. Focus on the fact that YOU just did something awesome and that’s it. Use that to carry you to the next great accomplishment. 4. Read the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. This book literally changed my life and the way I view things.
