I am reading a book right now and the family within it has the worst communication ever. It is the most frustrating thing to read at some points. They don’t say some of their most intimate and loving thoughts (that could build the other person up) because they begin to assume that the other person doesn’t care. In reality, they are just hurting one another and digging themselves into deeper and deeper holes apart from each other.
Knowing when to say or not say something is a big decision. This decision has been a reoccuring thing in my life lately. …I dare say the thoughts have even eaten at me a bit. I don’t want to dig myself into a hole away from others by not telling them things, but I also don’t know if God’s Will is for me to rest in a hole safely to protect my heart…. wow. if that isn’t a confusing analogy or what. (you should be in the analogy in my head right now…i don’t know where these come from)
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. -Psalm 19:14
