The GRIND and SHINE for today: 08/11/2016 3:01am
I am Sorry!
Many times we find ourselves saying we are sorry then asking forgiveness without knowing what we are sorry for. OK enough about that type of sorry today I am talking about being sorry from another view. Time for some of us to be SORRY because we keep forgetting that some people only appear to love, respect, care for and be concerned about us when they are in need of something we possess. That something could be a listening ear, money or some other service.
I am not saying change the person you are BUT I am saying that we should keep in mind that what we do for those people is not a RIGHT but a PRIVILEGE! They need to understand and realize that at times. Society has bred a culture of ENTITLEMENT and DISRESPECT.
Be reminded that many will do what they know they can get away with. Develop boundaries and know the POWER of your NO. If you keep giving, your cup will be emptied and you will not have anything left to drink for yourself.
Our FOCUS for today: Talk to the person you see in the mirror and let them know how SORRY you are for not realizing that they matter to some only when the users are in need of something the person you see in the mirror possesses. Ask for forgiveness, tell that reflection the power of their NO then move on.
