Nobody is perfect, they never have been,
nor will they ever be. Don’t keep count of other people’s mess up’s. Keeping your attention on the number of times people hurt, offend, or disappoint you is like focusing on every time someone falls. We know what the saying is about falling. It’s not about how we fall, it’s about how we get back up. Okay, so we need to treat one another with the same regard. When someone does something to upset us in any way, it’s only natural to feel humanly feelings such as anger, resentment, hurt, etc. I would be telling a lie if I said it’s easy to avoid these emotions. What I am saying is, feel them but try not to hold on to them. Shift your focus to how the person responded to the situation and to your feelings. Trust and believe, this will tell you what you need to know about the person, and where you stand with them. Did the person take ownership for his/her actions? Did they apologize? If so, were they genuine? Did they avoid doing it again? These factors show a person’s character and integrity, and that is what you want to focus on. Now, keep in mind, your ass is not perfect either. Please be real with yourself and admit when you are wrong as well. Just don’t pay so much attention to the hurt from the other person, that you lose focus on the bigger picture. Believe it or not, we can’t get around being hurt by others, it’s just not set up that way. When it comes down to the wire of it all, the fact is, we will always GROW through something with somebody.
