I would suppose many or even most of you have had occasions that could resemble the proverbial ‘elephant in the room’.
Sometimes this could be something that everyone is aware of but no one wants to speak of it. Then there are those times and situations, where it seems only evident to yourself. If it not terribly important in the scheme of life, it’s easy and probably better to ignore it, maybe shake your head and walk away.
On the other hand, there are important issues that happen, and it’s not always easy to clarify or straighten things out. There are times that are so complex. Currently I am facing one of those times. It’s not like I haven’t waded into, what it is that I’d like to clear up, but without being very much more specific, it simply won’t happen.
The problem is that it involves a close relationship. I’ve had some in the not too distant past, and they have been resolved for the most part only recently.
Now with this conundrum, if I choose to open this can of worms, I’m just not sure where it will lead, but If I don’t, there are others involved as well as me, whose feelings of hurt won’t just fade away.
As a Christian, I do certainly believe in praying about it but sometimes I’m uncertain if God is prodding me to open this subject up, or whether I’m not waiting long enough for a more specific action to take.
I know I have a very sensitive nature; I know that I feel for others; I know that I don’t want to hurt anyone or cause distress…. What I don’t know, is how to achieve the best possible solution for all! To NOT do something is NOT always the best thing….
Where is the wisdom that I’m supposed to have more abundantly now that I’m older…. ??? If you find it, could you send it to me?
