Just because I express optimism, positivity and peace most of the time does not mean I am less than human.
Understand that words can cut like a knife and that even with forgiveness, inner peace and mental strength I can still have a shadow side that gets brought to the surface by some. Knowing whom they are, I'd assume but would not like to be an ass, would suggest to myself to dissolve them from my life, right? So why, oh why, do they feel the need to try and push their way back in after you've made it clear you want no more contact?
Trying to learn the lesson from this.
Verbal abuse should never be okay, nor played down. Name calling and derogatory comments should never be accepted as a way of honesty. Never. "Friends" would never do this.
I am a positive, peaceful person 90% of the time yet I still allow words to cut so deep.
I did what I felt was best for me and it's being used against me.
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.
