BE CAREFUL OF CLOSING DOORS.............................................



"FORTUNATELY THERAPY IS NOT THE ONLY WAY TO RESOLVE INNER CONFLICTS.  LIFE ITSELF STILL REMAINS A
VERY EFFECTIVE TEACHER"...... 

Karen Horney

I firmly believe God talks to us thru other people.  Sometimes......we don't like the messages that are given......sometimes the message is given in anger/rage.......that doesn't make the message any less valuable.

"The passage of time, coupled with an openness to the messages gleaned from our conversations with others, can provide answers we need for the way out of painful situations."  Life is ebb and flow.......good times and bad.........but they are all necessary for our personal  growth.

Our conflicts are our special lessons in life.  We can learn to flow with them.....searching for the lesson to be learned in each encounter.

Our lives.....will never be free of conflict.....for we are all HUMAN.....nor should it be.

I'm not suggesting we should encourage conflicts.....but when they occur......look for the hidden message within.........DON'T CLOSE THE DOOR.........YOU COULD DO YOURSELF A TERRIBLE DISSERVICE ..... missing lesson's to be learned.

JUST ME THINKING OUT LOUD TODAY!!

Gentle hugs dear readers,

Jo

  4. Amazing how we find one another on the blogs. You and I are both the same age, both have two children, but alas, I am still waiting for a grandchild.

  5. Oh yes, God works in very mysterious ways....if He brings us to it, he will bring us through it...Best not bite off more than we can chew, because then He has to rework all of his plans for us.

  7. I have a habit of avoiding conflict at all cost. That has caused me much pain and unpleasantness. I am doing better. I am working on just saying no when I need to.
    Thank you for sharing this with me today.

  14. I totally agree! Now I hate to go thru 'these lessons', but when they are over - and things get a bit clearer - I do realize each time - with each lesson - that I have become a stonger woman. I like Mother Teresa's quote - "I know God doesn't give us more then we can handle, I just wish he didn't think I was so strong."
