You know how it is. When a person gets quiet especially for an abnormal amount of time, people perceive it to mean that person is being anti-social or mad about something. People even assume a person is depressed.
MAYBE I’M JUST PRAYING
I know I’m not perfect, and my nature to nurture tends to wonder myself when someone is silent. It wasn’t till people started asking me if I was ok that I realized the common communication issue between people.
Being so used to assuming myself all my life, I realized that learning Agape love teaches us that assumption is equivalent to judgement. To assume someone or something is a certain way simply based on visual perception is honestly a huge injustice. The naked eye can only see so much of something or a particular scene.
This brings me back to what my point is. When I myself am being silent, more than likely I’m reflecting, praying, and deciding. I’m an overthinker if you will. This has proven to be both a good thing and a bad thing. I sometimes drive myself crazy thinking too much. As if the simple act of thinking actually changes anything. Silly humans we are.
Or maybe just maybe I’m pondering on how happy I am. Happiness is overwhelming sometimes! Have you ever caught the Holy Ghost?!! Intense! Sometimes when the brain goes into hyper drive you shut down for a split minute!
Although, there’s been rips in the pages of my book of life, it’s been a very valuable and strong plot that resulted in a sense of desire for life and what this life can offer. My story is mine and as painful and magnificent it’s been, I will treasure it for always!
