I have been around too many good folk who have been hurt on the job, in organizations, in the church and etc. It happens because the issue never get address and we say pray about it and have faith.
Let’s get this straight. I am not a preacher, I am not a minister and I am not holier than thou. I am just a sinner saved by grace and I sin every day but I ask the Good Master to forgive me. I ask him to send folk to me that feel I have wronged them, offended them or whatever so I can attempt to get it right. I can’t get it right if I am not confronted.
We sit back and allow folk to be mistreated, attempted to be discredited and just simply hurt and we know they don’t deserve it but we say nothing. So if you witness this and say nothing, then you are no better than those who hurt folk. I refuse to allow folk to such and if I witness it any kind of way be it in person, or in writing, I am going to address it because I will not be held accountable when I am suppose to be my brother and sister’s keeper.
The older I get I can’t take a lot of mess.
I have asked and will ask again, if you have a problem with what I say and do then delete me because although I ain’t perfect, I will address folk and ask them to hold me accountable when they see me doing something that they feel need to be addressing. Come to me, send it to me but whatever address me.
When we hold each other accountable for our actions then the better off we will be. We sometimes error and not intentionally simply because we are not perfect. But I will say that in my comings and goings I try to address folk nicely but when they attempt to try to discredit me or make it all about me when it is not, then you may not like my response.
Don’t put me in a box! I am the box!
I ain’t there yet!
