HOW STUPID IS THAT?

20 Jul

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each page and sharing is encouraged. 

I can’t tell you what to do, nor do I want to.  Now that we have that understanding, I would like to suggest, for your benefit, that you listen to others with a keen ear?  I found that most people we know, including the ones we don’t, will tell us exactly how they feel about us if we listen to them.  The thing is they know we aren’t  paying attention, we are too busy preparing ourselves to respond to something we haven’t heard yet.  After all, we know everything, and it’s all about us, anyway.

Most of the time when this happens, we are under the impression it’s a joke.  Yea right!  More like a cloak to hide the real intent. (Hidden jealousies)   “Many truths are told in a jest.”  That’s “old school” now, this is a world of action and reaction, these folks aren’t kidding; “Get Behind me Satan.”

You all know I like telling a good story, that makes sense, well to me.  Anyway, here it is.

Not long ago a friend, who is very opinionated came to my home and caused a ruckusI was sitting in my living room on a beach chair.  I was asked why was I sitting so low to the floor while being reminded of the fact that I am not a “spring chicken,” anymore.

In the nicest way, I said, “it’s my seat of preference.”  The response to that statement was  “you’re stupid,”  and this was not the first time it was said.  The difference this time was “It was the straw that broke the camel’s back.”  (I had enough.)  Although I was furious, I was determined to take the high road, but my friend refused to lose that stupid word, even when asked.

As my out of line friend proceeded to tell me all I need to do in my home and how I should do it, I started getting the feeling I was by far not the stupid one.  Because I was unwilling to take their advice, my friend had the nerve to take on a defensive attitude, simply because they believe they knew what is best for me and my property; After all, they are only concerned about my well-being.  I suppose I should have thanked them because I am stupid, remember?

I said all that to say; this friend really meant well and believed every word they said was for my benefit.  Although their assessment is incorrect, in their small and deranged mind; oops, that wasn’t nice, this person really felt I was stupid because I did not readily accept their unwanted advice about how to sit, and on what, in my home.

“How Stupid is That?”

The good news is, we are able to squash our differences with ease.  Thank God, this friend has the ability to not hold on to stupidity, making it easy to hash out our differences, forgive and forget.

The moral of this story is; It’s up to me to accept them as is, or not.  In truth, the real person accidentally exposed themselves to me, simply because their superior attitude was too much for them to handle. They were not in control of keeping that overly opinionated big mouth shut, even in the face of indifference.

When some people try to talk down to us or over our heads, they assume, we don’t have the mental capacity to acknowledge their sly tongue; I say, pay attention.  Some really feel their opinion is all that, and we are too stupid to realize it’s not.  I don’t know about you, but l pray for them and continue to be stupidly happy, at home, with or without their company.  Plus, I don’t remember them or anybody else paying one dime towards my mortgage, so why sweat the small stuff?

I had to let it go.  This person is by far not the only one who has gotten on my nerves with their “my way is the only way,” attitude.  There has been some with whom I have imagined my hands were tied behind my back, so as not to lose control and strike, as I gently tried to remove myself from their company.  I opted for a peaceful departure and managed to keep a “hot topic”  off the airwaves.  (Gossiping with mutual friends.)

For I know; A wise man fears and departs from evil: but the fool rages, and is confident.  Proverbs 16:14  KJV

Oh Well!  Life will go on and I will forever and ever look stupid in the eyes of the stupid ones.  At least, this was a fun write.

Now, you tell me, “How Stupid is That?”

Lord, thank you for giving us the strength to recognize and respond correctly to any situation.  In Jesus name, we pray.  Amen

    Almost all of what you point out happens to be supprisingly appropriate and that makes me ponder why I had not looked at this in this light before. This piece truly did turn the light on for me as far as this issue goes. Nonetheless there is actually 1 factor I am not too cozy with and whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the actual main idea of your issue, permit me see exactly what the rest of the subscribers have to say.Nicely done.
