Some people just suck the energy right out of you. Physical, emotional, and social energy is siphoned off like taking a big draw of iced tea thru a straw.
Instead of drowning in the bottomless void these people leave in their aftermath, I’ve chosen to earnestly pray for them. I pray for their heart, mental and physical health, and our interactions going forward. And it takes work.
Work on my heart. Work on my thoughts. Work on myself. God can change anyone.
A person in this category is still God’s creation and has His love if he/she accepts it. It is of this that I remind myself.
I approach with caution, guard myself, pray before going into these encounters, and carry on. Not always successful at this, but we’ll call it my game plan. Psalm 5:8-12.
Looking forward to a more positive post on my next entry!
