No One Knows How to Do Life Anymore

Whatever happened to people having respect for people. Whatever happened to having good parents, no-divorce marriages, and money intelligent people. Alright, at Tru.Works we don’t believe in complaining but our thoughts have been full of these people and we are just hoping that we’re not alone with these thoughts.

 No One Knows How to do Life Anymore

Have you ever had a friend go out with your ex? Or maybe you caught your mom cheating on your day or your brother started smoking behind your back. What about teachers having sex with students and friends ganging up on other people. Have you ever wondered about why these things are happening?

Before the end of the world comes, things will be like they were before the flood of Noah’s time. It is written:

Matthew 24:37-39

The Arrival of the Son of Man will take place in times like Noah’s. Before the great flood everyone was carrying on as usual, having a good time right up to the day Noah boarded the ark. They knew nothing—until the flood hit and swept everything away.

But, we want to postpone that and have as many people saved as possible before that happens. So with that said, people will do you wrong. There’s no person that you have in this life that didn’t disappoint you in one way or another (maybe 1 person) but that doesn’t mean you can’t stop loving them. We have all done our share of things and so as we would like to be forgiven we should also forgive others.

Forgiving people is harder than what it seems, we know that here, but it is possible. Practice by thinking for someone who did you wrong recently ad go back to them and tell them you forgive them. It doesn’t mean you’re back to becoming best friends it just means you let go of the past. Be clear on what you want out of that relationship and move on.

No one wants to forgive. We have a nature to want to hold grudges and keep anger toward the past but that’s no way to live. Let it go, like Elsa did in Frozen and you’ll see a spring in your step.
