Don’t act like they did to you

He who is slow to anger is better and more honorable than the mighty [soldier], And he who rules and controls his own spirit, than he who captures a city.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:32‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Up until fifteen minutes ago, I was so upset. At midnight, someone decided to put up something about me that upset me. Like why not send a message instead and to think I considered her a friend.

I messaged someone to talk about it and she said to let it go. I honestly tried my best to distract myself but it wasn’t working. The Holy Spirit even reminded me of the scripture above, Proverbs 16:32.

Instead of lash out I decided to block her off my snapchat and Instagram so it doesn’t prompt me to sin in my anger and then I just warned off the rest of the people on my snapchat.

Tried watching something to distract myself and I slept off. I woke up this morning and was still pissed off with what she said. This was when it hit me that if I actually don’t let her know what she said hurt me, I wasn’t going to move on.

I sent her a message letting her know what she said was rude and unnecessary and asked her to please stay away from my social media. I really don’t understand why people follow other people they have a problem with. If you don’t like them, don’t follow them. This can’t be hard.

I felt better afterwards and I’m glad that I did send her that message. Haven’t gotten upset this year and i wasn’t going to stay upset. As much as I wanted to take my friends advice and let it go, it wasn’t working out.

The only reason why what she said upset me was because it wasn’t her first time of doing what she did and to an extent I considered her a friend. You shouldn’t confront everyone but if you’re going to confront those who upset you, don’t be rude even if they were to you.

Just let them know what they did and what you want moving forward as long as it gives you rest of mind.

  1. Its so interesting that this post is timely. I was just upset when I saw your featured image. Its interesting how unexpected it is for people you call friend tend to make you wish you never met them. I’m glad I did the same thing you did by letting the person know how i feel. God help us! Happiness is an intentional goal and I plan to keep being happy.
    Thanks for sharing this Biola.
