Today’s Topic: Relationships
To be happy and contented you must maintain healthy relationships with your parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, spouse, baby’s daddy, baby’s mommy, and children.
Relationships are not easy but if there are shared DNAs try everything possible to make things cordial.
Relationships are harder now because Social Media has become a platform to vent and air out dirty laundry. Conversations are done through texting, and counselling is accepting advice from people who don’t have to live with the consequences.
If you don’t heal what hurt you, you will bleed on people who didn’t cut you is such a powerful quote. Hurting people are sitting on a time bomb waiting to explode at a drop of a pin.
Relationships are not easy, but it’s ridiculous to
spend a lifetime being bitter and rehearsing the history until you take your last breath on earth.
I have had my fair share of deep hurt doing
cartwheels, throwing tantrums, and having emotional roller coasters till all my strength was gone. Getting out of self-pity was huge until I decided to take back control of my life. I decided no more poor me and I can’t believe this happened to me stories.
Nope. Bad stuff happens to everyone like a bad flu.
Anyone can catch it once you’re exposed to the outside world. During those experiences I learned the true meaning of unconditional love.
We learn how to live. We live what we learn. If we live with resentment, we will become fighters. If we live with love, the love will cover a multitude of wrong doings.
If we do not mend broken relationships with family members there will always be a white elephant sitting in the room staring at you all hours of the day and night making you vulnerable to the haunting images.
Let’s stop ignoring the white elephant in the room so we could heal. Cycles must be broken. Anger, divorce, sibling rivalry, parent-child conflicts, baby’s daddy, and mommy, did not start with you it started generations before you.
And if you keep refusing to do what’s right the toxic and negative cycles will be passed down to your gorgeous Princess and handsome Prince. Look for lessons learned. What could have been prevented and how to reset your choices in life.
The good news is, Jesus heals the broken hearted. Every person needs forgiveness. Allow God to examine each piece of the puzzled relationship and whatever hurts allow Him to heal.
1Peter 5:7 says, “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” Nothing works until God steps in and miracles happen.
Prayer Time: Father, thank you that you are the Wonderful Counsellor and the Prince of Peace. Teach us to forgive so it doesn’t destroy our hearts. In Jesus Name, Amen.
REMINDER: Don’t allow today’s social media culture to drag you down to a level of immaturity.
