Hey everyone! Welcome back to my blog! Today, I wanted to talk about leading and following. Some people might wonder which one is best. Is it better to be a leader and do your own thing, or is it best to follow others? Sometimes, we might feel confident and want to stand out a little bit. However, other times, we might want to follow others. To be honest, it all depends on the person, and whether they’re and introvert or an extrovert.
If I’m being honest, this question can be a little complicated to answer. But, in my opinion, I think that both have a time and place. If that doesn’t make sense, I would be glad to break it down for you.
So, let’s say you are about to go to class, and you overhear that all of your classmates are planning to skip class. Well, in this is an example of a situation where you would want to be a leader. If people around you are doing something that you know is not right or even necessary, (especially in God’s eyes if you are a Christian), then it is best not to participate in that behavior.
In other words, some situations are better handled when you do your own thing.
However, I also explained that sometimes it’s best to be a follower. The reason why I say this is because God gives us people in our lives that we are meant to follow. Some examples are Him, our parents, and maybe even a friend that has a positive, I repeat, POSITIVE influence on you. Some people in our lives are their for us to respect and obey.
Even in adulthood. Not all parents are a good influence, but if they are, then it is still best to love and respect them.
Remember: God gives us our parents for a reason.
Okay everyone! I hope that you learned from this break down on being a leader and a follower. In conclusion, being a leader and a follower have their times and places. Just be mindful of who has a positive and negative influence, and base your involvement with people on that. Also, remember that nobody is perfect, so it is okay if people make mistakes. If you are ever struggling with this concept, just ask someone you trust about this.
Have a happy, amazing day everyone! ✨
