It doesn’t matter whether we do the right thing, it’s a fact that people will fail us. Disappointments come in many forms.
Whether it’s a family member, a friend or a best friend who make a promise they said they would keep, not doing something they said they would do, saying something intentionally to hurt us, or by not being the person they portrayed themselves to be.
Unfortunately for some of us, these problems are all too commonplace and have become an accepted part of our lives. When we’ve always been taught to do the right thing and it’s not reciprocated, we’re often left in the dark and on the receiving end.
I understand it’s not always easy for other people to deal with things on a personal level, but it doesn’t seem right to say nothing. What becomes wrong is when the other person won’t admit they’re struggling and still continue to imply things are okay, when we know they’re clearly not.
I would rather be told someone’s struggling, than them fail to say nothing without putting things right, than live with the pretence of thinking everything is okay. Unless we know for sure the reason for their absence has something to do with us, it’s not to say we won’t concern or worry ourselves over it.
Experience will often show us that it’s everything to do with who they are and what they deal with and nothing to do with us.
