I often have to remind myself that everyone in my life is there for a reason.......and sometimes I have to also remind myself, the opposite is true too.......that I am in their life for a reason. I also have to remind myself that my definition of friendship is not the same as someone else's.
I have written several blogs about friendships, about the power of words, and purpose. I really struggle with
relationships/friendships sometimes......we pick our friends, we deal with our families.......so how far do you let it go? Is it all based on respect, kindness, common interest, and love? Do we allow ourselves to be trashed by someone in the name of friendship/family........are criticism, hurtful words, in the disguise of "truth"
acceptable.......or is it just mean spirited digs, thinly disguised?
I can't ever remember hurting anyone in my life on purpose, those that vex my spirit I tend to keep my distance.......but sometimes a "veil" of friendship can hide bitterness and a hardened heart. Is the lesson mine to learn, or am I there to teach a lesson? Maybe I will never know.
Serious thoughts and questions for a Saturday night.
