Love endures…

Dealing with people has always been a major “ish” for me. People just always seem to get on my nerves and so in handling people, I have tales to tell. Don’t get me wrong, I am also a handful or maybe a neckful…😁 but seriously, I find dealing with people really exhausting.

Something recently happened to me that showed me that I have grown in endurance.

I belong to this group where people are encouraged to voice it out and let it out always. At least that is what is preached there and so I decided to try to voice it out too in my own innocent way and got a lot of lashes for doing that.

Truth is at that moment I was boiling inside of me. I desperately wanted to respond brashly and give everyone a piece of my mind but I kept asking myself, what good would it do? I could win the argument and pour out exactly all that’s on my mind and get away with it just as if it never happened. But I also thought:

What would happen to the people who would be hurt by my words. Not that I intended hurting them but sometimes when you speak out of the deep seethed anger you feel, you hurt a lot of people unintentionally. At that point, I received all of the “lashes” because LOVE ENDURES all things.

How about you? Have you had any enduring experience in trying to love people. Please feel free to share…

Love,

  1. Thanks for sharing Estibels. Interpersonal skills don’t come naturally. Frictions are inevitable; hurt and disappointment are sure. How we respond to, and learn from the experiences determines the quality of our interactions and relationships. The life of a recluse is not an option worth taking. Sometimes I wish it is. But deep down inside I know it is will be detrimental to me. One can say anything one likes, but not everything is worth saying.
