Why do we try so hard?
It’s in our being to try and please someone; ourselves, others, or the idea of perfection.
This is something we constantly struggle with.
We try to please people by the things we buy, the music we listen to, the clothes we wear, and the slangs we use. Everything tries to fit and mold us into a box. We weren’t made to be in a box.
You see, God created us for relationality. He wasn’t bored. He wasn’t unsure of what to do. He didn’t think, ‘hey, humans would bring bliss’.
God created us for fellowship with Him.
We shouldn’t feel the need to please others when we should be seeking Him.
