I had another post in mind to publish. It was a happy one like I always try to publish. One that would make you happy and smile because of all the wonderful friends I have. Tonight something happened to one of those friends that caused me not to feel so wonderful and joyful.
I have always been know as a girl with meat on her bones. I have spend most of my life being a big girl and being made fun of for it. I have always excepted who I am and thank God for it because I feel that it has made me a stronger person. I have learned to overlook the ignorants of others and to love people for who they are and not for what they look like. I think I am a much better person for it.
Tonight a friend went to dinner with her family. We have all done it and we cherish the time we get to spend with family. She is a big girl like me and has always walked with her head held high. Tonight she was brought to tears by the insensitive comments of others. Comments to disgrace her in front of family and strangers. These comments were not provoked or asked for, but given freely by teenagers who don't even understand the harm they have caused.
We live in a nation where everyone has the freedom to say what they please. Even though we have these freedoms, it does not mean that every thought that goes through your head should be spoken.How do I teach someone to overlook the heartlessness of others as I have? How do you stop the hurting that was brought on by another? How can I stand there and look her in the face and say "forgive them" when I myself feel sometimes not so forgiving? Life is to short to hold in the pain that others have brought on you but sometimes it can be so hard to stop the Hurting.
