Have you ever had people act as judge and jury of your life? Have you ever had every thing you say and do is scrutinized by people? Have you ever felt condemned by people and you weren't really sure why? Well, you're in good company! Lots of us have been here. Many of us have been victims of the people police.
People police can get under your skin and provoke you into a bad day. Their condemnation can push you to respond in a way that is outside of your character, because they never stop. People police are persistent! They feel it is their duty to weigh-in on other people's lives. In truth, people police are projecting.
Everybody has bad days. Bad days come and go. How we respond to bad days is a reflection of our growth and character. Sometimes people compare their bad days to others as a means of justifying their behavior when they are having a bad day. This, of course, is not acceptable. The best thing we can do is own up to having a bad day and do what we can to not project our bad day onto others.
It is no secret that I am a Christian. So, I look to my faith for examples on how to govern myself. When I look at people in the Bible, I see that all the great leaders of the Bible frequently had bad days. If you think about it, when you are leading and making progress, there will be people who will not like it. They will do everything they can to assassinate you in more ways than one. People will attack your character and some will go so far as to want to eliminate you permanently.
