Have you ever realized that? Sure in the end good always wins but man sometimes don’t you just want to stoop to their level. I have a had a few rough months lately in which I have seen who are the people who should be in my life and who should not.
I will admit yes a few months ago I was a not nice person, I was hurt and angry because of a situation that hurt me very badly. I did what most people do and I stooped to the level of who I was upset with, I talked about them to people. A few weeks after I did that I realized that made me absolutely no better than them and in fact my mood was worse than ever. So I decided it wasn’t worth it to me, I decided it was best for me to just pray for them and for me. I decided anytime a thought about how angry I was at them I would not get angry but say a prayer instead. It has been working wonderfully, I have not said a bad thing about them or anyone for that matter, I have been peacefully blogging away.
Of course when you are trying to live right and do the right things something always happens that tries to throw you off course right. Well that would be yesterday, I got an email from a friend of mine (nope no names sorry) saying that they were told I was talking about them. WAIT stop the press……….WHAT!!!!!!!!!!! Well that is just crap because I haven’t even talked about the person that hurt me so why in the world would I talk about someone I like! My life (online and nononline) has been so peaceful because I had chosen to take the higher road, by not talking about anyone. Oh I was boiling so I tweeted LOL.
Then I realized (when I finally calmed down and anaylized the situation) that because I am trying to live right, get my life in order and get back on track with God attacks are going to happen. It’s a way of trying to get me to give up and give in really and I will not do it.
I will continue to be the better person and will continue to get my life in order. I will continue to restore my relationship with God and let him be in control of my life. I will rest in the fact that the truth will always come out, it always does. I pity the person that is always trying to kick others when they are down because they are unhappy with themselves it truly is a miserable place to be (I have been there before) and in the end they only end up hurting themselves worse than those they are trying to hurt. I will just keep doing what I am doing and not let the lies people tell get to me I in fact will just pray more for them.
I do have a few requests though, if you are going to talk about someone always know it will be found out what you are saying and you will be the one that has to answer to the people you have hurt or tried to hurt. Ask yourself “is this something I would want to happen to me” if you can answer no then why in the world would you do it to someone else. Instead of gossiping why not be the one who stops it, if someone comes to you and says “Oh I have something to tell you about so and so” tell them you will not participate in gossip and maybe just maybe you will be the one to stop that one person who is trying to hurt another.
What good does it do you really to try to hurt someone else? To try to mess up friendships between people? To talk about people? Does it really help you out in any way that is beneficial?
Being the bigger person and the good guy/girl isn’t always easy but it is always best. It is always what wins out in the end. Being a real friend, not just coming around when there may be drama going on to find out what it is. Being a real friend all the time, not just when it is beneficial for you. Being honest and caring not just pretending to care so you can find out what may or may not be going on with people. Those are the things that win out in the end, being honest, being real, and TRULY Caring. If you are that way then you will always come out on top! Be positive, Be real and most importantly Be the better person, never give anyone reason to talk and then if they lie it will only hurt them in the end.
Okay that is my deep thoughts post for today. What is your advice to people on how they should treat others or things they should not do?
