Is it even possible?

Lately I’ve been feeling like a Debbie Downer! A sour lemon. A Bitter Betty. “The sky is falling, the sky is falling!!” cried Chicken Little.

Imagine squirting this in someone's eye, and that someone's reaction is exactly how I feel.

So I bet you might be wondering WHY I am feeling like this, or maybe you don’t care I guess. Either way I’ll write about it. Because I am slowly discovering one person at a time, that this world I live in, my peaceful little life, is easily upset. As I have grown up, from child to teenager to adult, I have learned that people are disappointing. Over time, the list of people who have disappointed me has grown. Sometimes they’ve had redeeming qualities and over time the disappointment fades away until all that’s left is the other side of the train tracks where are relationship gets solid, after that little broken spot, it becomes solid asphalt again. But some people stay on that list. Now there is no literal list but if there were I feel like lately it might have grown to fill a novel! I wish this were an anonymous blog where I could list fake names and describe some of the ridiculous things that have been said or done.

Exile.

Infidelity.

Carelessness.

Hurtfulness.

Stupidity.

Denial.

When people hurt you or those you love – is it even possible to believe in good, anymore?

  1. People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.

    When someone is in your life for a REASON…It is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a Godsend and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be.

    Then, without any wrongdoing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. Sometimes they die. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. Your need has been answered, and now it is time to move on.

    When people come into your life for a SEASON…It is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

    LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant. ~ Unknown

    1. Oh Debbie you are so great <3 Always have a nice thing to say! I guess I just wish I could be a more kind person but I just feel bitter right now. I'll always be working on it I guess, thanks for the inspiration!
