Let God be the only judge of you. If we rely on people for our own happiness, we will always be disappointed. This I am learning day by day.
Telling lies about others is as harmful as hitting them with an ax, wounding them with a sword, or shooting them with a sharp arrow. ~Proverbs 25:18
Quite frankly, I am disappointed in a friend of mine who has truly broken my confidence with her. Not only did she lie about me, but she made me look as though I was a true mental patient!
I guess it has a lot to due with our past love relationship that I ended; leaving her to be angry and resentful... It happens....right? Trying to establish a friendship with someone you can't trust is very difficult to say the least.
Putting confidence in an unreliable person is like chewing with a tootache or walking on a broken foot. ~Proverbs 25:19
The only positive that can come out of this, is if she were to apply for a job at CBS as a reporter.
Her words are as truthful as Dan Rather's.... They want you to 'tune in' and listen to them, to hang on their every word, to make them appear as 'interesting', when eventually, the truth will be revealed, and then, Dan Rather will become unreliable, as he is now.
Do you continue a friendship with someone that has said untruthful things about you? I believe so. I think the ability to forgive is a wonderful thing --if you can do it. The 'forgetting part'---well that takes time, but being cautious is key. I think all of us make mistakes in our lifetime, and that is why I choose to forgive my friend for making me out to be such a horrible person.
If your enemies are hungry, feed them.
If they are thirsty, give them something to drink, and they will be ashamed of what they have done to you...~Romans 12:20
I had a friend a while back who spoke way too much about people she cared about. The more she spoke, the more my attention drifted over into other areas. I was completely bored... Sometimes, people really don't want to hear a bunch of b/s about someone else.
The more words you speak, the less they mean. So why overdo it? ~Proverbs 6:11
How wonderful to be wise, to be able to analyze and interpret things. Wisdom lights up a person's face, softening its hardness. ~Ecclesiastes 8:1
The more I pray to God to reveal people's true motives and true characters, the more and more things get unfolded before my eyes. If you have doubts about a person that is in your life, pray & meditate about it, ask God for wisdom and discernment, and watch how people's true characters overflow the truth.
Also keep in mind that we as 'humans' are not perfect either, so I am not trying to come off as a saint here. I reference scriptures from the bible to help me understand 'life' a bit more.
There is not a single person in all the earth who is always good and never sins. ~Ecclesiastes 7:20
We're all at fault sometimes and that's just human nature.
