Our souls may lose their peace and even disturb other people’s, if we are always criticizing trivial actions – which often are not real defects at all, but we construe them wrongly through our ignorance of their motives.
It’s funny when you use a journaling prompt how it changes your blogging experience. I have cheated a couple of times this month during my “Love Fest” because I just had to get something off my chest or I just hit a brick wall at the “word of the day”. I could have easily done that today.
Instead I decided to google quotes about saints. I should know a thing or two about saints because I was raised catholic but nothing is coming back to me. I love the above quote though.
I can say I use to be VERY GUILTY of this very thing. I wanted people to think like me. I wanted people to call “a spade a spade”. I wanted people to keep it real. I type all of that today and laugh.
I was reminded again this week that not everyone is accountable for their actions and not everyone does the right thing. I was reminded this week that you should never do anything for another person and expect them to appreciate it. If you do what’s right then you’ll always be able to look in the mirror. I was reminded again this week that I am one of those people that just don’t really give people second chances. I forgive, but I don’t give people the opportunity to hurt me over and over.
I think it’s safe to say, “A saint I aint.”
