Shut Up! (Stop begging people to love you)

I have a really bad habit of talking until I’m blue in the face in an effort to give people chances to “fix it”….whatever it is.

I don’t know why I do this. I find it’s counterproductive because as long as I’m talking, it means I still care….

Except, you get to a point where you start not to care, because you see others don’t care either….no matter how much you talk….and beg…and plead….and open your wounds and pour out your heart.

You can spend your life telling a person what you need from them, and they can spend a lifetime refusing to give it.

At this point you have a decision to make…..
Will you continue to degrade yourself by begging and pleading when you should not have to? Or…..

Will you realize your error and begin to free yourself from the bondage of accepting less than you know you deserve.

Be ye not deceived, whatever you sow…you reap.
Stop throwing all your effort into soil that doesn’t want to receive you, and find the good soil that will provide ALL you need to flourish.
Too many of us want to force the soil to accept the seed.
But what if the environment of that soil isn’t conducive for your growth?

Understand, you’re not meant to be planted in every garden you see. Some of us suffer because we’re trying to force growth in soil that isn’t our own. We’re trying to force the soil to produce and it ain’t ready. Accept it. Move on.

Let me tell you one thing I know for sure, people hear and respond to what’s important to them. When you realize you’re repeating the same thing(s) over and over again and nothing changes, that tells you all you need to know about the situation.

Anything you gotta beg for ain’t worth you having.

Stop talking. They heard you a long time ago and refused your request.
If they wanted to appease you, you’d be appeased.
They don’t want to appease you.
So stop asking.
Stop begging.
Stop wasting your breath trying to express your soul
Hoping something will strike a nerve to help them see
YOU.

They see. And still…..they refuse. Accept it.
There is peace, healing, and power in accepting things/people for what/who they are.

Selah.
