Be The Better Person!

Be The Better Person!

Sometimes you can hold your head up for so long before the weight becomes too much to bare. You can put up a strong front and pretend that nothing bothers you. Then, when something happens or is said, that glass comes shattering down around you.

Ever feel like you have one of these in your back? Instead of stabbing them back, show love and pray!

It’s a simple fact that everyone you love is not going to love you back. Some will love you unconditionally, while others down you like a dog. They will put the knife in your back and twist it a few time to make sure it hurts. Then they will come and pour salt into your open wound. When in actuality, they are not happy with themselves or their circumstances, therefore, they will make sure that no one else is happy either. Whether they are jealous over a certain situation, over your family relationship, over your friendship with someone, anything in general, or just want to be the top dog with everyone, we have to continue to love and pray for those who despitefully use us.

So go ahead and love and pray, it will eventually get easier to handle if it doesn’t change. Be the better person and go on with your life. You can’t make someone else enjoy theirs.

  • I needed this Karne. I mean I really, really, REALLY needed this. Great job! Love you!

  • I’ve actually been in a situation like this and learned a lot from it. And praying for that person and showing them kindness, no matter what they showed me, really did change the situation for the better. It’s hard sometimes (well, most of the time), but it’s what we’re called to do as Christians. It’s not just the best way, but it’s the ONLY way. And it’s worth it. Good job, Karn
