Empathy is a great thing to exude in every type of relationship. And here’s why:
A good, healthy, successful relationship is one where each person is constantly doing their part to better themselves. Does he… does she… do you…?
We do a lot of things God doesn’t like seeing or hearing, yet he never shuts us out because of it. He always forgives, listens, and loves.
It makes sense – the desire to protect yourself – but how do you do that and invest in community as we are called? How do you learn to trust people and protect yourself at the same time?
If I couldn’t hear the truth myself, I needed to talk to someone who could speak it to me.
Comparison can kill – our hope, motivation, enthusiasm, and desire to move forward and pursue our dreams.
I challenge you to pick one way and one person, and go make sure they feel important today!
When the people we love are suffering, in whatever form and for whatever reason, it can be hard to know what they need and how to be there for them during hard times.
In the midst of good times and easy decisions, we may not stop to think about the bigger realities up ahead. So when you ask, “does it really matter?” I urge you to consider these things.
Relationships are tough, and loving someone isn’t always easy.
