Today I am sitting here thinking again. I have noticed most of my life that we often miss those closest to us. I don’t mean miss as in I feel sorrow that that those closest to us are far away, I am talking about how we tend to overlook them even though they are standing in front of us.
I have seen all too many times that we tend to not thank someone or say I love you to that special person or family member. I have spoken to many people about this and they tell me aww it is ok that’s family and we don’t need to say anything. I just refuse to conform to that way of thinking. I believe that anyone that does something for you or help you or just loves you, should hear it. that’s what encourages us to do more.
I know that not all the time it is going to happen, but we all need to make sure that we see the gift that is in front of us. Are we so self absorbed that we feel that it is the other person’s sole purpose in this life is to just cater to your needs. how can a person be so callous in that way of thinking.
No matter what the relationship is we need to be gracious of all the offerings that anyone gives to us. I have seen the detrimental effects that this type of behavior has done to a person’s soul. How can a person be so self absorbed and selfish that they deny a family member the glory of feeling and hearing the love from one another? I just don’t understand people, well I do understand that most people can’t see beyond their own personal needs. what I mean is that we are all looking to be accepted we all want to be loved. When it is looking at you square in the face and asking you for sweet and kind words, how you can deny what they seek?
Life would be so much better if we all thought beyond ourselves and treated those closest to us they way they want and we need.
I think that in this world of social media that this idea of my be too much to ask. but one can hope that sooner or later that we will get to that place where we all get the love and thanks that we need and so deserve.
