Can’t we all just get along?

27 Jan

There is a difficult fact of life . . . We will all face death. When another person dies, someone we love, that is the most difficult thing to understand and handle. BUT, other things die, too . . . Cell phones . . . Relationships . . . Plants . . . A fact of life is death.

When someone we love dies, we grieve and move through. It is part of the circle of life. What about a relationship? A friendship? It seems when these die, we don’t know how to handle them. We hold grudges. We hate. We obsess. It can be an unhealthy mess.

I wish I’d never had a friendship die, but I have . . . Being a middle-child and Meiers Briggs ISTJ, I want everyone to be happy and wish no one would be upset with me. That doesn’t mix well with being a pastor . . . Sometimes people just get mad at me because they are mad at God . . . Or mad at the church . . . Or, just mad at themselves. Other times, they ARE mad at me. I am not perfect, mind you, but I do work to not get into those messes.

But, sometimes it is just gonna happen. How about in your life?? Ever been mad at someone, dissolved a relationship, and years later had no idea why??? I see it happen all the time. DON’T LET IT HAPPEN, FOLKS. You will always regret it.
