I have this silent cry for attention. I’m not much different than him who expresses himself with compliments and flirtatious actions. I myself respond and give back asking for attention, and also remain silent to see if there’s anything in return. When there isn’t, it’s humbling. It’s humbling to see that I am not the center of the universe and my focus shouldn’t be on trying to be the center of the universe. My life and other people’s lives are not a game. We are not pieces on a chessboard. We are the spitting image of God who are to be treated as so. Instead of sulking in my “despair”, how can I pray for him, her, it (referring to the situation)? How can I be used by God to make their life easier? Just some thoughts for the night.
