Day 21

Hiya!

Guess what?

We’ve got 9 days to go! Yippee!

Seems September has been on fast forward. I’m not about to get anxious about the year ending already, so ama just stop there. 😁 Hope you’re having the best of the month. Alright, let’s dive into today’s challenge.


Day 21: Something I can’t seem to get over

Hmmm. I can’t seem to get over the fact that I’m almost done with school and the free days it afforded me. No more hiding away in my room or the library on Tuesdays. Lol.

Most importantly, I can’t seem to get over human behaviour- particularly the two-faced bit of it. This year, a good number of people I had hitherto called friends were filtered from my life using the ‘loyalty’ filter. I was shocked, and still am, that people could go to great lengths to pretend to be friends but behind your back would say nasty stuff.

I have an inconvenient heart, as wordporn describes. I love and feel too deeply for anyone I allow into my life. This usually sets me up for disappointments that I can’t seem to get over.

I believe friendships should be sacred and respected. And as we get older, we look for more in people- loyalty, honesty and trust. I get that we can’t separate human nature from people (even the Bible says the heart of man is desperately wicked). But I still hope against hope. And I’m thankful for the few true gems who show me that real true friends do exist.

I know that someday, I would look over the sour experiences and understand that there are indeed double faced people who can’t pretend to be friends for too long. And as painful as the truth is, accepting it is the only way out of great disappointment.

Yish! This turned out to be a heavy piece for me ‘cos I didn’t know I still felt so deeply about it. I guess that’s why it’s something I can’t seem to get over 😊

In the spirit of sharing, is there something you can’t seem to get over?

Have a lovely weekend dear friend! Thanks for checking out the blog today.

Love,

M.

  1. At this moment I think I have gotten over some things I thought I couldn’t get over.
    Some took me a good while to get over.
    – not having a younger sibling
    – getting over a major heartbreak/betrayal
    – ungrateful relatives

    1. Awww, you don’t have a younger sibling like me too 😘 The beauty in your comment is that those things we thought we’d never get over…we eventually do. I hope to get there some time. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi Dainty M,

    I’m looking forward to reading all the other days of this challenge.

    Every time I watch the film β€œThe Passion of the Christ” by Mel Gibson, I can’t get over how much God loves me, how much Jesus suffered for me. And when I think that this act of love, this sacrifice was made for me, for the entire world, whether or not I or anyone chooses to accept the free gift of salvation, the depth and quality of unconditional love, is beyond comprehension. I can’t get over it!

    1. You literally just explained this amazing love we’ve come to know through Christ! Thank you for that Lady Cee. Words are not sufficient to capture the potency of this love. I pray that everyone comes to know this love and accept it truly. You’ve gladdened my heart with all your comments. Thanks for catching up!
