i know it drove her crazy
yet she remained my friend and is still my friend today, thankfully
but my problems with insecurity unfortunately have hung around as well
i'll be honest i replay every conversation in my head
trying to judge if anything i said could have made someone mad
i judge body language and tone way too seriously
and now in the world of text when you can't
i find myself going now is this okay like okay or like OK
or is this yes happy or yes if have to
or is this thanks sarcastic or sincere
my mind runs consistently if i let it
which is no good
it's no good for my friends or me
so i work hard against it
but when i least expect it sneaks up on me
this worry of what others think of me
the thought that someone doesn't like me or is mad at me
is haunting really
relationships are risky
friendships can be made and broken with a simple statement or act.......
but what if they weren't
what if grace was the norm
forgiveness and acceptance were offered instead
today i read Romans 12 and these verses stuck out
so my question for you is this
how are you at risky friendships?
are you open and honest with no second thoughts?
do you filter your conversations?
do you offer grace?
i believe God wants us to live this life with people to lean on
friends who understand us and pick us up when we fall down
without worry or doubt
ps i have the best friends in the world!!! i thank God for them everyday and that they love me in spite of my insecurities.
