Life would go on for the family, much better, if we gave one another the benefit of the doubt. Also, realized, so many of the things we say or do are out of a mixed up mind.
I for one, know, I've jumped to conclusions, judged others and said unkind things in the heat of anger, grief, asumption and shock. To those who've been the recipients of such ramblings, please forgive me. To those who've perpetrated them upon me, I forgive you.
Our family has recently suffered a loss. As is true with many, is true with us also. Old wounds come up, new ones occur. The fact is, we are all just trying our best to get through it.
Sometimes we simply cannot rally to the occassion. Whether it's our own personal demons, pain or ability to deal, or something we are hiding from. The fact is we are all doing the best we can to get through the day.
None of us are innocent, in general. Some of us hurt each other without intending to do so. In fact 80% of all offenders, have no idea they've offended us at all.
The solution can be as simply as Mind Your Own Business and/or talk to the person you believe has offended you.
We all have a back story no one else is aware of. I will try to honor yours, if I fail, I am sorry.
The fact is, that old rule of reciprocity pops up throughout our lives. Chances are we don't recognize the error as our own in times like these, maybe never. When someone doesn't show up for you, chances are; when were so needed, you failed to show up for them.
Think about it. . .
Fantasizing the freedom that comes with kindness and being true to yourself.
