Today’s app message is about communication. I always thought I was a good communicator but this situation is tricky because any way I approach this seems to be the wrong way. I can’t be too nice and I can’t be too angry. I’m not believed no matter what I do so I just seem to go back and forth between the two.
While working in retail management for 15 years, I came to the conclusion that 10% of people are genuinely good no matter what, and 10% are jerks. The other 80% of people can go either way depending on the circumstances. I’m saying this because I know that the majority of people usually want to try to do what they think is the right thing. I know you all were trying to do the right thing. I’ve always known that and that’s why I’ve stressed the importance of being merciful. I understand that you might be as stressed out as I am and I’m sorry that you were put in this position. I really am. I grew up in a contentious home with step-siblings and all I’ve ever wanted as an adult is peace. That is something I’m afraid I can’t provide right now. I wish I could but this is something that won’t go away unless I fight it. I usually compromise and give people what they want because it’s more important to me to have peace. I can’t do that now, I’m sorry.
God will show his mercy on all of us. He knows us individually and loves us. This I know.
