this simple phrase damages me more than I care to admit.
have you heard it before?
have you said it before?
maybe I'm soft, maybe I'm weak - but I loathe this phrase. I hate disappointing people, especially those close to me.
so, when I hear that I'm a disappointment, it stings.
now, you can psycho-analyze my desire to please people or my father-issues all you want - trust me, I've already been there.
what is it about us (yes, I'm including you in this as well) that desires to please?
I'd honestly rather someone just be mad - it'd be far easier to digest.
I cannot be all things to all people. I can be Tyson.
...and when God looks at me, he sees Jesus - and I try my best to remember that.
