Think And Then Speak

I’m writing this days ahead of when you are reading it. I’m not even sure I’ll even be posting this, actually.

Today I saw on facebook something that angered me so badly I had to take a deep breath, close my eyes and say a prayer. I texted Abby and asked her to pray also, and could hardly type the words correctly because of my anger.

I’ve done pretty well the past few weeks and really thought I was over the town we used to live in and the people we served. But this one comment threw me right over the edge.

Nothing was said directly, but what was implied hurt my feelings. It seems that some people tend to think that their opinions are always correct. That they aren’t opinions but facts. I am quite insecure and never want to hurt anyones feelings. But, some people are just evil.

I don’t know what kind of person you are. I don’t know if you are meek and mild, or harsh and opinionated. But if you are the latter please think before you speak or post. If you are meaning to hurt someone’s feelings please re-think your intentions. What you say hurts. I’ve had plenty of thoughts I could have typed these last few months but I have kept those to myself. Just because my feelings were hurt doesn’t mean I should do that to someone else.

I don’t mean this to be a sermon, just a lesson learned and shared.

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
