What Difference Does It Make What You Think?

I need to make decisions independent of what others think. Right? marriage-rocks_2523272b

What difference does it make what “they” think? What difference does it make what “they” say about me?

 

So, I’ll decide for myself.  Now…question is: How do I decide?

How will my decision make me feel?

What’s that glaring look in your eye when  you look at me?

 

But…I just can’t live alone. So, I guess it does matter.

 

There is so much hate, and sorrow, and natural disasters that wipe out entire towns…babies dying, hungry children, distraught mothers, persecuted fathers, neglected animals…the list of horrible things in our world is long and ugly.

But when you think about it, all of these horrible things have an “origin” somewhere in the human experience…It’s called cause & effect.

 

The thoughts in my mind began in my heart. My heart is broken. Am I angry? Just sad, not angry? No, I Am angry. But my heart can somehow, still hold compassion, understanding, a feeling for you…a feeling that I still care what happens to you. That’s the difference.

Dig deep.
