Who To Satisfy
Did you for one second think I meant sexually up there? #grinning.
So you should only sexually satisfy your spouse, the one you are legally joined with in holy matrimony, with God as the witness.
Anyways, that isn’t the talk I have for today’s article with that topic, it was only coincidental you had that thought. Moving to the real business…
Tuesday, 9/11 marked the day another year was added to my age, and for this, I wanted to do a special write-up but if you are one conversant with how birthdays are celebrated, you will already know how the whole day can go by before you even realize what time it is .
It was some glorious day as it has always been and even in history #blushing. I had good fun, lots of best wishes and of course items but guess what? I also got a bit of a bummer and it was kinda so bad I got teary. But as always, I moved past it even though that is the real content for this article.
Again I am reminded that you will never be able to please everyone. However, there’s no need to worry about this as you really don’t need to please anyone. Did that come as a shock? Yes, I say it again… you need not, absolutely not please or satisfy another – it always goes to ruins in the end!
Trying to justify yourself for the so called faults they knotted with you is even worse, too much heartaches, too much and unnecessary bother on one’s shoulders. So I suggest you let that part slide also.
Have you ever been in an environment even for the shortest period you can find yourself in a place and got remarks you would never in your wildest imaginations have thought could be attributed to you, something you’ve never gotten in the whole of your living on this planet earth? Well yes, that was part of the encounter and should I say “wishes” I got on my birthday. Pheww, so exhausting I must say!
We say we get ‘corrected’ because they supposedly love us and seem to want the betterment of us. Hell yeah. How about knowing it isn’t ‘just’ for you. It is so saddening that one will be made to come down hard on oneself because some other persons seem to think they are in the right position to spill off based on their limiting sense of judgement of circumstances. How they seem to believe they know it all is weirdly amazing! How you know it isn’t just you with the problem is when after the public “correcting”, they come behind in private to apologize for however way they may have spoken and asking sincerely for you to overlook their outburst. How convenient right?!.
When people think they have the right to talk down on you in the name of wanting to give you corrections, I beg you to please run!
Trust me, they had not one good in the heart in making that point. Imagine what gathering you must have been in when comments as that were flying by from them? Have you thought of the havoc such insensitiveness could cause to both your moral state of health and your relational state with other unknowing onlookers, the bias which may not have been detected by such persons and then the permanent effect on your balancing in the long run – trying to play
by their supposedly good fate which I beg to say may be the “wrongest” views, but because you got the lash there you think/feel you should try to weigh up as they proposed. While this could be the worst ever decision you make because after taking all the ‘corrections’ you supposedly were given, you then move and those new set of people you meet can’t even begin to accommodate the new culture (/corrections) you have imbibed.
But as I will always say, these are all my opinions, you are at liberty to pick which works for you – pick the side that works for you, what you want to imbibe and of course share some of your own opinions with us here. We could do well to pick a point or more by learning and seeing something from a different point of view.
In all, how about you just DO WHAT IS RIGHT! However that then plays out, you leave to God to help you handle and deal with resulting factors. But always remember even that “doing” starts with God first so you can ‘end’ well with Him too.
How has your week been lovelies? It is my birthday week and so you trust I feel awesome. Yayy!
