We all deal with the cards we’re dealt. Somehow, I ended up with all the Jokers.
There really is only one option between doing the right thing vs hiding something which may never be discovered. Suffering consequences sucks, but no regrets. Integrity does count for something.
Sometimes you have to burn a few bridges to keep the crazies from following you.
How many chances you give someone depends on how long your love for them outweighs the pain they cause when they hurt you and how long you’re willing to put up with it.
Never expect more from someone than what they’ve shown you in the past.
You express the truth of your character through the choice of your actions.
“We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed. Perplexed, but not despairing. Persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Cor. 4:8-9
Common sense is so rare these days…it should be declared a super power.
“Pride is spiritual cancer: it eats up the very possibility of love or contentment or even common sense.” ~C. S. Lewis
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
