A Two-Verse Bible Passage for When You’re Bothered By What Someone Said About You



This is going to be a short post today. So, I’m writing this because I am so sick of letting what people say about me get to me. I was just laying on the couch thinking of something someone said about me, and I was feeling heartbroken. I felt so sad that I couldn’t even get up.


I am really tired of letting this happen, and letting things get to me so badly. It’s a waste of time to sit there feeling sad over what people say about you. I love this little passage from my favorite book of the Bible for this issue:

Ecclesiastes 7:21-22 ESV
21 Do not take to heart all the things that people say, lest you hear your servant cursing you. 22 Your heart knows that many times you yourself have cursed others.


This little two-verse passage has been a sanity saver for me for years. It’s one of my all-time favorite Bible verses, because I wear my heart on my sleeve and I’m too soft. When someone says one little thing bad about me, I way overreact and become miserable. So, I hope if you can relate, that this little passage will be helpful to you.


Suffering over every little thing people say isn’t worth it. You’ve got a life to enjoy. So let  it go, forgive, let yourself heal, and let yourself be happy.
