Okay so I’m with a band with a few of my friends. I’m the only girl out of five members. Fact: my school music director supervises us. Fact: my parents are totally okay with me working with dudes. Fact: my band has had this discussion, the whole no one dates a band member thing and ew that’s gross we’re friends thing. Fact: my school and community JUST CANT GET OVER IT. People criticize me because I work with the guys. You can guess what people call me behind my back. I’ve explained over and over to everyone that NO I’m not what you’re thinking, NO I’m not a crazy representation fanatic so leave us alone and let us have fun and do what we love? But they don’t listen. I’m at a loss for what to do now, anything anyone?

Sadly, there’s really nothing that you can do except to ignore them because you are obviously doing what you love to do and if really bothers them THAT much (which it shouldn’t), then good for them it’s none of their business anyways. I know how you feel I like to hang out with the guys at church because there always seems to be drama with the girls but then there’s always those few people who are like “look at Chloe she’s trying to flirt with all of those guys” *rolls eyes*. Just ignore what they say and keep doing what you love to do. 🙂

That’s really tough, and I can only imagine what it’s like to have to endure discouragement like that. Like @chloe523 said, it’s best to just ignore them. Remember that God knows your true motives and his opinion of you is the only one that matters. And, guess what- His opinion of you is that you are wonderful, that you are HIS child and that HE loves you and will always love you. Ask him for strength from day to day. Ask that He will help them to see that you are not what they think and that they’ll see Christ through your witness.
I’ll be praying for you! Don’t let them get to you, keep doing what you love!
