Read: 2 Timothy 1:15-18
“But when he arrived in Rome, he sought me out very zealously and found me” (2 Timothy 1:17).
ertain people will be drawn to you, others will be repelled by the very essence of who you are. There are about seven billion people on earth and each one of these is different. No two individuals are the same, even identical twins. We are all wired differently, with our own abilities and personalities. Your personality type is your preferred and natural way of living and relating with the outer world; in terms of how you process information, make decisions, relate with others as well as your approach to life. Some people are extroverts, others are introverts. Some people prefer a structured approach to life, other prefer a more spontaneous and flexible approach. Some people are logical, preferring to deal with hard facts, others see the big picture.
If this is the case, why would you expect everyone to like and accept you? Why would you feel rejected when you do not fit into certain groups? Not everyone will get you. Certain personality types will naturally gravitate towards you, others will not. You would be naturally drawn to certain groups of individuals and environments, and you will be repelled by others. Pause for a moment and write your name on a sheet of paper, then using your other hand write your name again. You will discover that when you used your preferred hand, you could easily write down your name and the letters were clear. Using the other hand was difficult and clumsy. You will also discover that you were more comfortable in the first instance.
You have a preferred way of doing things. There are people you would naturally gravitate towards and vice versa. There are environments you would flourish in and there are others you would struggle in. Once you acknowledge this truth, your life will be easier and your relationships better. Rejections will become easier to accept. So, understand this, not everyone will get you and you will not get everyone.
