Q & A with Myslef.

Today sucked.

I am so glad for my sweet friend. I went over to her house to decompress. She is truly a good friend and sister.

Q & A

1. What do I need to learn from my problems?

Keep my mouth shut at all times, don't stick up for what I believe in, even when I believe I am trying to do the right thing. Learn to go with the flow.

When I look at time as a whole, from the beginning of time to now, from now until the rest of my life, until the end of time when ever that is- How big are these problems? from that prospective small. Like a grain of sand. How big do my problems seem right now? Like a mountain.

2. Can I control the way people think or act? no. Will getting piss off and defensive help? no. What should I do? Keep my mouth shut. Let God be in control it always works out better that way.

3. What can I do to make myself feel better?
  • Pray
  • Read scriptures, write the scripture down
  • Don't talk to anyone
  • Hug my doggies
  • Write on my blog
  • Go to bed and hope for a better tomorrow.

The bible says you should never add or take anything away from it. So I will not change the wording when I write it down ( man, he, his, her, woman.) When I read the bible and it says Man, he or his, I think it is talking about all mankind. Not just men or women.

13:1 & 3

The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.

A fool's talk brings a rod to his back, but the lips of the wise protect them.

15: 1, 4, 17, 18, 32

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.

Better a meal of vegetables where there is love, than a fattened calf with hatred.

A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel.

He who ignores discipline despises himself, but whoever heeds correction gains understanding.

16: 9, 25, 28

In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.

There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.

A perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends.

17: 27 & 28

A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered.

Best one of the night
Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue.

You are right Kristi, in the realm of things this is very small. Yesterday was a very difficult day and that was just the straw that broke the camels back. People can take things the wrong way. We can clairfy our intent and if they still don't get it we can be like Miss Sunshine and don't give a@@@@. Now if you had this problem with one of your dear friends I would understand your concern but this is not one of your dear friends and if you can't make them understand just let it go. You are a great person with nothing but good intentions. I really admire you. I like that you stand up for what you believe in. Keep being Kristi. The world is a better place because of it. I'm glad you are my friend.
