Why is it that family always hurts you the worst? Oh they may not *mean* to hurt you. But a word here or there, or even a comment can cause you to become upset or hurt at your family.
Yes I’m sure they have the best of intentions, that doesn’t make it right. That doesn’t give you the right to say anything about my actions, right or wrong. If I ask for help, you totally have the option to say no, WITHOUT the OPINION.
Guess that is the problem. You think you have to right to tell me your opinion instead of just saying no. Everyone has the right to their opinion, whether I agree with you or not is irrelevant.
It is hard to know the right or anymore the wrong thing to say. It may offend someone. Well sure, anything that you don’t agree with can or will offend you.
Sometimes that is even harder in a Christian family. “Everyone* should be on the same page, but at times we aren’t. We tend to only see the wrong others are doing, and not what we ourselves are doing.We need to support and love each other and yes that may mean saying no to helping us.
I’m not perfect, don’t want to be. I want to be Chrsitlike. Every day I have to pray that I have the strength to turn from my flesh and see God. What would he do in this situation? How can I turn this into an act of love instead of hate or anger?
I can’t do this alone. I have to have God in my life in order to walk THROUGH the valley.
Psalm 23:4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
It doesn’t mean I won’t have problems, just means God is taking me through.
While I may rant and rave and poke here, it is with the best of intentions, this is my platform to get out how I feel.
My feelings aren’t wrong, the actions I take with those feelings is what sets my right and wrong.
My family is such a joy no matter where we are at in life. Through the good and the bad, we are always here for each other. Just makes it harder sometimes when we don’t see eye to eye.
