This blog started from a conversation with a few friends and I wanted to share it with others.
I remember when I was younger in elementary school and a friend would say to me, I’m not this person’s friend, so you shouldn’t be their friend either. “
Sounds familiar? Lol.
But the reality is – that’s not even my hurt. You can be friends with someone and another person may choose to not be friends with them because of their experiences. But whatever happened between others should be for them to resolve and it shouldn’t be hurt you carry as your own.
Sometimes, you are mad at others not even realizing you may have limited information from one party. Usually, we aren’t even familiar with all the nuances of the situation and we carry other burdens like they are our own.
I’ve also seen this happen with children as well when their parents have an argument or if their parents divorced. Kids are sometimes forced to select one parent over another. It can often be an awkward situation for the child, when they can be loved by both parents.
Take a moment to think about the hurt you are carrying. Release that hurt to God and breathe again.
