Being a woman is hard, but being a woman in a relationship is harder. Its like opening up part of your chest, and offering it to someone. When they hurt you , its like they ripped part of your heart out and poured salt where the rest remained. When they love you, its like they added better parts to you, and sewed you up nice and pretty, no scars!
Yet, as a woman, we let petty little things mar our feelings and we become super-beasts. God made me emotional, and God knows I am emotional to the core, but for some reason he made me patient enough to never hit. I am proud of that fact, but I am not proud of the fact that I have taken things about on my friends with my words.
That is in its own way,a punch in the soul.
Someone happened to talk some dirt on me, I was so very unhappy with this fact that I spilled to my best friend about it, who just so happens to be good friends with this woman. I felt so bad, I just didnt talk about it anymore.
Do you know how hard it is to swallow pride and the burning need to redeem your self?! Its like trying to win at chess. All strategy. I SUCK at strategy.
I am Mrs. Blunt-and-to-the-point.
So pray for my mouth to stay shut, and forgive me if a few words leave.
Set a guard , oh Lord, before my lips.
Love your friends, and think of the way they would feel if you spilled something about one of their friends if you were upset. Would you tell them they were wrong? Would you not say a thing? Or would you avoid the situation and leave?
Thanks much and God Bless!
