I Don’t Like You


I’m just being honest,Β I don’t like you…

I don’t like you feeling not good enough.

I don’t like you feeling unloved.

I don’t like you feeling hopeless.

I don’t like you feeling afraid of the future.

I don’t like you feeling uninspired.

And isn’t it possible that what we don’t like in others is actually what we don’t like in ourselves?

Isn’t it true that it’s easier to find things that we don’t like in others?

Isn’t it true that it’s easier to give solution on somebody else’s concern?

And what if they are not taking action? Sigh…

And me? Some don’t like me either.

But there are some who appreciates what I’m doing.

Enough to remind me to…

Enough to remind me that I can be merry any time of the year…

Enough to remind me that anyone can be a gift to the world…

You are a gift to the world!

You know I like you, don’t you?

    Aw, this totally went a different direction than I was expecting with the title, but I like the twist! πŸ™‚ You ask some important questions and raise some excellent points. For what it’s worth, I think you’re VERY likable, spoon! πŸ™‚ *hugs*

      Thank you so much for trying to see where I headed. I am so lost most of the times — I only try to make the most of what I have; to see something good of what’s laid before me. More blessings will come your way for your sweetness πŸ™‚

  6. I had a friend once tell me..a person treats you the way they feel about themselves…deep down. It’s so true. This is fantastic.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      I can see the truth in that truth πŸ™‚ With this knowledge, it can make us more understanding of others — that sometimes they are actually fighting with themselves and no need for us to increase the number of opponents. Peace πŸ™‚

  7. Rea, This is so true: “And isn’t it possible that what we don’t like in others is actually what we don’t like in ourselves?” I have found this to be the case for me when I have a critical attitude about someone else. It’s better to look at ourselves and ask God for help in improving. I’m glad that I do not think I am unloved, but know that I am infinitely loved by God Himself! As are you! Congrats on the awards – you deserve them. Peace, Linda

    • bendedspoon Says:

    Oh my! I don’t like you not writing hard too! I love this. And it is so true. We point out the bad so easily don’t we? Nice twist on helping us see things differently Bended!

    • bendedspoon Says:

      ‘Write Hard’ makes me smile because it also reminds me to try hard to improve my writing. I prefer gentle reminders πŸ™‚
      I miss you!
