People will write you off in life. That is just how it is. You cannot do much to change their choice if and when that happens. Notwithstanding that fact, one must do everything within his or her power to continue living a life fulfilled. Besides, to do otherwise is to hand-deliver ones life’s power to someone else who does not care a single thing about him/her.
When I think about the crisis that occurs all around us, the mere hurts dished out to us, are really peanuts. Heck, so many real souls are being lost daily, so many hearts are being literally shattered, so many limbs are being broken by wicked acts of other real people. The small rejections, write-offs, and their cousins are definitely unimportant.
The Ebola victims, the citizens of Gaza, the innocent women and children dying from the wicked acts of men, the hopeless, brainwashed men offering themselves for the selfish benefits of others; when I think about these more concerning matters, my issues of loss, hurt and pains are irrelevant.
To this end, I will take another rejection, I will allow my heart to be broken again, I will humble myself to say “I’m sorry, Please forgive me,” I will be the bigger person in my smallness of honest acknowledgement of my failures. It is worth it I think. Yes, it is worth it, because truly, these are incomparable to the horror, terror and misery of so many hurting souls all over the world.
The losses, the deprivation of our own properties , the disrespect from selfish people, the cold shoulders, the verbal back-stabbings are weightless in comparison to the fears, dejections, injustices and bitter pills dealt to so many around the world. The dreaded photo of thousands fleeing a place they have called home for so long, to go to — “no-real-where,” – that is what matters. These are the things we ought to lament over. That is what we should condemn forcefully. “Woe to the down-pressers…” –Bob Marley would say!
Meanwhile, let me do what I can from where I am: “Say a prayer for the world…” –For the sake of His (Jesus) sorrowful passion, Father have mercy on US, and on the Whole World!
