A few years ago, someone said something to me that got me worked up because, first and foremost, it wasn’t the truth and I felt betrayed and mistreated. Before I realised what was happening, I not only found myself trying to disprove them, I also became suspicious of others and in that same breathe felt the need to be careful around people.
The truth is this person wronged me and for no just cause, the truth is, they hurt me in the process; however, the problem was with them and not with me. But because I was hurting and I had decided that they had come to get me, I inadvertently declared a war of sorts on everyone and that was my folly.
As I continued on this war path, most of my allies were confused and the others irritated because they didn’t understand why I spent so much time on something I could so easily have walked away from! But remember, I was hurting and hurting people struggle to be rational. It was in this mess that God spoke, He said “Bidemi, don’t let them”. Don’t let them? Isn’t it too late for that? They already hurt me, I wept.
