Grateful for Unkind Ways

Don’t miss out on the gifts that come from facing the people who challenge you, even in an unkind way.

Thank you for telling me that I don’t read the Bible enough. Thank you for saying that I don’t listen to our class. Thank you for scolding me for having a fickle heart. Thank you for all the lessons you’ve given me. You may not have taught them in the nicest way, but I’m still grateful.

Thank you for telling me that I don’t read the Bible enough, for now I am revisiting my faith by reading not only the Bible but books that would nourish my faith. Thank you for your words, for now, I am closer to God than before.

Thank you for saying to me that I don’t listen to class, for now I am reading articles and books on how to listen to class more effectively. Not only that, but I started to watch videos related to the class you told me about. Now, I am learning a lot more. Thank you for your words, for now, I am no longer studying for grades, but for understanding.

Thank you for scolding me for having a fickle heart, for now I am only focused on admiring one person. Thank you for your words, for now, I am only focused on loving myself.

I am even thankful that you rejected me, for now I am doing my best to find myself and what I am worthy of. I am doing my best to find true happiness. Again, thank you for rejecting me- Thank you for letting me be happy, even without you.
