Sometimes I fool myself into thinking it’s too late to try to patch up something I mucked up. Badly.
Sometimes I fool myself into thinking I should continue to harbor resentment towards those that did me wrong.
Sometimes I absolutely justify the idea of giving that person who stole my parking spot a dirty (shooting daggers) glare.
Sometimes I’m certain, that certain people don’t deserve grace. That I’ve given them more grace than they deserved. The ones who lied. Those who stole, and defamed, and took my penny when I didn’t have a penny to give.
Sometimes I make “boundaries” that are far beyond acceptable.
Sometimes I see a 2 minute and 22 second short film and I think – yeah, I need to get over myself in thinking: it’s too late, keep resentments, shoot daggers, never offer grace, and make sure they can never ever hurt me–or anyone else–again.
Watch, draw your own conclusions. I’d rather be the skinny twerp than a fat angel with small wing syndrome. (yet, it’s so easy to be the fat angel)
