WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU THINK ONE HAS DECIDED THEY DON'T LIKE YOU

Humans are a moody sort, huh?  Up one day.  Oh up three years!  And then one day---boom---not speaking, not responding; very distant.  What's this all about? 

I spent a lot of time in that prison.  I ain't easy serving time there; especially for one who wants EVERYONE to like him.  But...such is real life. 

So what shall we do? 

The solution is very simple; think upon all who do like you.  Give them your mind; not the one(s) who have some sort of social problem.  Theirs isn't yours to cure.  Theirs isn't yours to fix.  It belongs to them.  Hopefully they will one day return.  They often do.

In the meantime, treasure those near you who have neither abandoned nor punished.  They are in abundance and you can be glad....very glad.

You're outdoing yourself this week, brother. You're on a roll with good, good stuff! May God bless you as you bless him.

Just not enough time in the day to carry around hard feelings...especially in our work. If wounded, we must forgive quickly and move on...and if we wound, we do what we can to make it right, promptly. Life is short...we must love honestly and intensely...

I hate this prison, too!

Thank you for the reminder, I actually really needed this one on this day!

By the way, I do like you! I can't imagine anyone not liking you.
