Here goes the second task for the single ladies!
Friends, do you know what’s the hardest thing to accept in the world?
Not everyone is ready to hear the truth; you must first have the emotional structure, spirituality and humility to hear certain truths.
Whoever said that the truth hurts was right…In fact, the truth can hurt a lot! But that’s not to say that it’s bad, it’s actually quite the contrary.
You know when someone tells you something that hurts, it almost seems as though they are cutting right through you, but deep inside you know that the person is absolutely right?
Has that every happened to you?
Do you remember how you reacted?
How did you react?
Your reaction is what counts; it’s what matters.
Did you feel hurt? Offended? Worst yet, did you hold a grudge against that person?
If we aren’t humble enough to accept the truth, how do we intend to grow up? How can we think about marriage, for I am certain that your husband won’t hesitate to tell you a few truths- and then what? Will you hold a grudge against him too?
Look, I’m not saying that the truth isn’t going to hurt or that we won’t be saddened by it but that sadness has to be directed towards ourselves and it can’t be prolonged!
My husband once told me “You are too proud!” That was the end of the rope for me!
Thoughts began to bombard my mind…
First I felt angry, what nonsense! “Me, proud?!!!”
Then I felt mortified that he would think that of me: “What a monster he is!” I thought.
Lastly, I kneeled down and began to cry until my throat hurt… he was right! Oh how hard it was to admit and face the truth! I felt worthless and humiliated but oh how good it did me.
“Analyze yourself. Check to see if you are facing the “truths” in your life/relationships correctly. Stop fooling yourself! If facing the truth means going back to the end of the line, then so be it! Restart in your faith. Correct your mistakes; after all, no one is perfect! It is horrible to have to pay such a high price for something that could have been avoided had you just accepted the truth…"
