How Do You Know?
How do you know those hurtful words you hear weren't just the hurt of another spilling out over onto you?
How do you know the words of another were never meant for you to hear, but just spilled over, out of years of pain?
How do you know the scream session you endured, was not about you or your actions? How do you know it was really about the other person having undefined boundaries, and maybe an anger problem?
How do you know the advice you received was just the other person sharing what God was leading them to do in their life at this time?
How do you know the pain you felt, really wasn't meant for you to internalize, but to realize the other was hurting and needed you to notice?
As far as I can tell, there is only one sure way to know...
When you ask the One Who Knows All, and your heart is soft and ready to hear His answer. Then, and only then, will you know for sure.
At least that has been my experience,
