“I hate my life.”

I heard this horrible statement today, “I hate my life.”  It was given at a very insignificant moment.  A moment where no one was burning alive.  There was basically no chaos.   The building wasn’t falling in and as far as I know the earth was not trembling.

IMMEDIATELY, The word PERSPECTIVE popped into my head.  What a skewed perspective that one statement held.

I wanted to say out loud, “REALLY?”  (I didn’t, but I also wanted to say…) Do you really hate your life?  Are you in enough mental anguish to HATE this exact moment of your life?  Are you in physical pain?  Did your mother abandon you, dog die or tooth chip?  What about this…Are you dying of cancer?  I’m pretty sure the answer to all of those questions IF ANSWERED ABSOLUTELY HONESTLY would have been NO.

Once again, I have a person in my life who will soon die of cancer.  I know she will be with Jesus and of that we can absolutely and joyously be certain of, AMEN!  To say good-bye to another person I love thanks to cancer makes me shake my head.  I know God will take us all the way we are to die, but *sigh* the word cancer makes my stomach lurch.  It makes tears come to my eyes and my head hurt.  I pray that this diagnosis somehow works for a good in the lives of people who love this wonderful person.  Duhhh…God is in control so, I already know that good will happen.

Right now, though…

I can’t stop thinking about PERSPECTIVE …AND can’t get this insane statement out of my head: “I hate my life.”

REALLY?!?

You don’t REALLY know.

People want to know who you are, what you do, who you are with and if you have anything to hide.

WHY?  We are all so curious!

I know in this age of social media, there is so much personal information available to us on just about anyone that there’s not much left to face to face contact. When we do actually physically see one of our “friends” on facebook (or other sm), we assume we know everything there is to know about them.  I mean, IT’S FACEBOOK OFFICIAL, right?

You never really know the whole story though.  You may think you know thanks to whoever you follow, like or read a post about… but you really don’t REALLY FOR REAL know.

I do admit, there are some people who look like they post every single aspect of their life out there for all to see, but even those are not truly open books.  I’d like to think like I’m sure others do:

“What you see is what you get.”

BUT REALLY?  No one shows you everything.  We all have things we don’t want others to know.  We have habits or ways that we don’t want to be apparent that, a lot of times, shouldn’t be, but are.  Ew.  No one REALLY wants to know you pluck your nose hairs, only wear black underwear or have to eat your food in a counter-clockwise motion.

Some of those things might seem interesting to some, but again, like above, I ask… WHY?

We are such curious people.

We THINK we know everything,

But seriously….

you don’t REALLY know.
