Could those who know you best label you as flighty? You need not be concerned so much about your deodorant brand as your changeable moods and opinions. People distance themselves from those they perceive as flighty, moody and uncertain. We place our confidence in those who are well grounded.

“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing and favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself] complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you (1 Peter 5:10 Amplified Bible).”
