I hope you are all well! Thank you so much for your ever kindness and supportiveness, you make me so happy 🙂 (sorry for saying this a lot!)
Today I want to talk about popularity, and if its okay to always want to be popular or not. I think this is a quite a big and difficult topic for a lot of people, but especially teenage girls. Everyone wants to feel loved and have lots of friends, but we don’t want to be so driven to be popular that we put it before anything else.
‘Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.’
1 John 2:15-17
I’ll admit, this is quite a hard verse to read! However, this doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t love our friends and family or things in the world, but simply that we should put God first in our lives. We should love God more than anything else, because ultimately everything in the world will pass away, but our relationshp with God will last forever. We don’t want to be so caught up in trying to be popular that we forget the most important thing in our lives, Jesus!
Also, being popular doesn’t necessarily mean having the best friends. Surely it is better to have a smaller group of lovely friends who really care about us, than hundreds of friends who don’t really care at all.
Overall, I don’t think popularity or wanting to be popular is a bad thing at all, as long as we put God first in our hearts and find people who do genuinely love us.
But what do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts about popularity in the comments! 💕
Lots of love,
