What is wrong with people?
Lacking forgiveness but proclaiming to be saint like. Lacking love, but preaching it on the top of mountain peaks. Giving hope, then when you are comfortable, snatching it away like a warm blanket, leaving you desolate and ruining your *sense of security. I know that we were all born into sin, but do we let our sins run us like marathon’s to the point that, they consume our identities?
It is strange to me when people are not use to being shown kindness and admiration, even attraction. As if, they have been so use to the complete opposite. How dark is the human race, that things that are so sweet in life, like being encouraged, being cared for, being loved, being wanted, and being appreciated, is so foreign? They are often turned into something deceitful and false if shown too much or shown at all..That disturbs me.
I have heard so many kind people say this one phrase: “I am not use to getting compliments.” That statement hurts my heart, because how can one live life and be surrounded by people who love you, yet, not hear a single compliment that encourages your lifestyle and your entire being? How is this love? I do not call it hate either, clearly your loved ones do not hate you, but, I call it, a “State of condition”. My response to anyone who says this is: “Just accept these compliments.” Use them for your fuel. Believe in them. When I give them, they are not just a random act of getting what I want…..I compliment, because I love making people smile and feel their most excellent…..just the way God made us. I love feeling this way.
State of condition
We are so use to the hate and the hurt, that if we are not careful, we subconsciously become what we despise, until our entire lives reflect our souls being hurt, in a negative light. So to avoid “hurt”, we would rather shut down, turn off, get away from anything or anyone, who makes us feel anything other than safe, secure and on track. We are taught to do these very things. However, we have to extend a strong vine of compassion. We would like to think ourselves, better than those who hurt us, but we are not. Those of us who are hurting, also do the hurting, whether we want to believe that or not. The only thing that even makes us different, is the fact that we have realized sooner, that we are living on borrowed time, and it is better to forgive and move on with our love intact, than it is to spend our lives, dwelling on what we can not change.
Even with having my own personal issues, I am understanding a lot more, in the midst of heartache, what love truly means and what love truly is. Knowing my worth, has spelled out the true meaning of love, that I deserve and that I will have. It is never comfortable being broken in our souls, but it can do one of two things….turn us into cold human beings who live to hurt the hurting, or transform us into peculiar souls who love so dynamically, that it is a little scary to some 🙂 but embraced because we make people feel the way that they should……totally LOVED.
The answer to the original question: “What is wrong with people?” My response would be……we are all, or have been hurting souls, in need of the deepest love (God) in need of people who believe in this deep LOVE.
