ahh don't think too much of it. Its a lesson, you know? Think.. how did I handle that, how could I have done better? Its in the past. Don't be so
hard on yourself. You'll feel better soon, just give it some time. You'll find something to re-affirm your trust in the people around you. And.. if
you really wish you handled things differently... just think of it like this... you did the best you could at the time, to the best of your knowledge
and your ability. How can anyone be expect to do more? You could no doubt do things differently now because of your experience of that situation.
When I look back at things I wish I did differently I just think wow... I have really changed... but I don't get upset over the past... Instead.. I
feel happy..and accomplished, acknowledging how much I have changed for the better.
Everything has 2 sides to it.. its a simple matter of choice. How you wish to look at it. If you want to feel depressed over it.. look at the negative
aspects... if you want to feel happy...look at the positive... if you want to feel humble about it... just acknowledge them both.. Learn from it, and
not let it dictate future decisions.
I have to say I find a bit disturbing what you said about severed connections and that sort. It doesn't seem very.. loving..or wise for that matter.
That would have done it for me also. I just can't get on board with blocking people out of my life, especially who have done me no wrong, except
Its like... you don't go to a church, or temple and hear "na, we don't want ya here, you gotta leave". If I had a teacher that placed me as such..
as being beneath others.. or unfit in some manner, then I would have to question the teacher.
We're all one in the damn same man. We have to remember that. We need to exercise patience and compassion. I am thankful of the patience and
compassion others give for me.. it empowers me. I love to love. I love to recieve it, I love to give it. I love to learn, I love to teach.
Everyone diserves equal treatment, always. By severing connections with people, you are severing connections with a piece of spirit, a piece of
yourself, and you are rejecting compassion. Thats just my opinion anyway.
.. Formulate your own conclusions. But please.. never stop sharing
