When Somebody Doesn’t Like You Anymore

Has it ever happened to you that when you try to talk to a friend, you have to be very careful choosing your words or else your gonna get it?  It has happened to me many times.  I won’t name any names but it’s always a very difficult experience.  Sometimes you are very good friends with that person but something that you will do or say will eventually turn that person against you.  Those people are like time bombs that are ticking.  You may be successful in avoiding the inevitable for a long time but in the end they will eventually blow sometime.  You’ll be lucky if the friendship continues after the blast, but if not, then you will at least live without regret that you did the best you could to make your friendship work.

Today a person stopped liking me because I dared to disagree with him.  I don’t hate that person even though he offended me many times.  I just tolerated his personality because I just accepted who he was.  I knew that this person had a difficult personality and I tried to retain his friendship as long as I could, but sometimes he would start to attack my FB posts or if I made a joke, he wouldn’t find it funny and belittle it. Sometimes he would even insinuate that I was ignorant, less spiritual, and he even questioned my integrity as a christian.  It’s funny because I have friends and relatives who are agnostic, gay, and with all kinds of backgrounds; but the person who made it really hard for me was the one who was supposedly to be more “spiritual”.

Now those are the times when life doesn’t make sense to me.  But people can be that way. We can’t change them.  I’m sorry to have lost an acquaintance, I pray that someday he will find the real light and I wish him well.  But the truth is that I feel more relaxed now.  I can post anything I want and know that he won’t be there to belittle me anymore.  So, I guess that all is well that it ends well.  Everything that happens has a purpose.  God is still good!
