Hey beautiful people
So as usual I’m coming at you with another post on personal life experience! This life lesson is still pretty much a fresh wound for me, but I believe that it is essential not to WASTE your moments of suffering/trials. I am a firm believer that forgiveness is a key aspect of the Christian faith yet I know that many of us believers find it hard to forgive those who deeply hurt us. But I shall no longer digress but jump straight to the point which I desire to express, which is to FLEE from toxic relationships!
So I think at this point in my life I FINALLY realise what a narcissist is! There are some individuals whom you’ll meet in life who feel super entitled. They ALWAYS deserve better than everyone else, and it’s always ‘your’ fault why things don’t work out. They expect you to bend over backwards for them and they tend to give back very little in return, or nothing at all! Such people will find every single excuse under the sun to make you feel bad about yourself and sorry for them! If you meet such a person please don’t try to play their Saviour, that’s not you job, only Christ can save, and you can’t help a person who isn’t willing to be helped, or doesn’t KNOW they NEED help.
My strong advice to you is to love such an individual from afar. Such characteristics in a person should set off alarm bells in your head! You NEED to run VERY FAR away from them. You can still show love to that person by being respectful, but usually being in a intimate friendship with such a person leads to heartache! And we must remember the bible encourages us to guard our hearts at ALL COSTS Proverbs 4:23! Another thing which narcissist like to do is to turn moles into mountains, and make a big fuss over petty matters.
But under all circumstances forgive the person who offends you even when it hurts sooooooo bad! Why??? Because Christ forgave! And we ought to follow in His footsteps Ephesians 4:32! God forgives us on a DAILY BASIS so don’t ever forget that! Even when Christ hung on the cross and people mocked Him He spoke out and said ‘FATHER FORGIVE’! But as I always like to say, you cannot be best friends with EVERYONE, accept this truth and move on! But what I would like to leave you with is to seek to uphold peace at ALL costs, as this is the desire of Gods heart (Hebrews 12:14).
A lot of the time narcissist are individuals who are going through emotional turmoil within, I’m not using this as an excuse to justify their actions, but whilst guarding your heat try to be understanding in the process too! For love is PATIENT 1 Corinthians 13:4. We must learn to be patient with other human beings!
Luke 23:34 ‘Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots’.
Many people who offend you in life won’t even know that they have done so. But you (we) must simply learn to forgive!
I hope you’ve taken away something from my post today y’all, goodbye and God bless!
The godly lady
