I don’t like you. Shut up!
You really should take a positive thinking course. You are wearisome and I just don’t think this relationship is going to work out. I’ve lost all patience with you. I don’t think we were meant to be friends anyway.
You never believe in me, but always find fault and point out my problems. You try to make your words sound like flattery and then you zing me, like one of those judgment house preachers who “shout” love and then scare the hell out of you!
You interrupt me constantly without giving me a chance to say how I feel. You do your best to convince me that I shouldn’t even try, and then when I do, you are full of shameful words that compare me to the rest of the world. You’ve only told me what I’ve done wrong and why I should stop trying.
You’re filled with impossibility and countless reasons why something won’t work. No more “understanding what I’ve been through” and chipping away at who I am. There you go again! No, you’ve had your say. I will not listen to you anymore. You and your cloudy forecast predictions.
I am plugging my ears to your voice. The fact that you continue to try to stop me signifies that something new is on the wind for I am hearing a new Voice. The sound of the soft whisper is getting my attention. My view is becoming like a wide-angle lens!
I will not lower my expectations because of you, I will not settle for less, and I will continue to aim for living full, giving my all to God, whether I succeed or fail. Bullet proof? No, but I’m not asked to be.
