How to be a miserable and unpopular person

Some people complain that they have no friends and no one likes them. They react by saying that they don’t need those kind of friends anyway. They end up living a lonely and unhappy life. What makes some people more miserable and harder to get along with? Not only that, they are so unpopular with their peers. It’s not the amount of money that they have or do not have because popular people many times come from poor families. It’s not how they dress or the car they drive because people with all kinds of clothes and all kinds of cars are popular and happy. It’s not their physical appearance, because some of the most popular and friendly people are not always the best looking. So what makes some people miserable and unpopular?

Some people just feel sorry for themselves. They feel life has not been fair to them and that could be true but they let it have a negative affect on them. They refuse to look at the many blessings and advantages they have. Some people just worry about everything. They feel that they have not achieved anything in the past and worry the future will be the same. Some complain all the time. God never promised a life without trials. II Timothy 3:12 tells us “All who live godly will suffer persecution.” Some people always insist on having their own way. They always put themselves first. Philippians 2:3 tells us “Let each esteem others better than themselves.” Some people feel like they know everything and make sure everyone knows it. I Corinthians 10:12 tells us “Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he falls.” The know-it-all does not realize they will fall oneday.

Probably the main reason a person is miserable and unpopular is because they are unfaithful to the Lord. They listen to everyone else but not to the Lord. They go to themselves and not God when they need help. Philippians 4:19 tells us “My God shall supply all your need according to
his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” They see unfortunate situations and failures in their life as doom. Romans 8:28 reassures us “All things work together for good to those who love God.”

Are you a miserable and unpopular person? If so you can change that. Put Christ first in your life and come off the high place you have put yourself on and become a servant of God. The truth is your thinking, your beliefs and your actions have made you the person you are. Let Jesus make you a loving and popular person especially with those who love the Lord.
