The only folks we really wound, are those we love the best
The Quote/poem today to discuss is this:
There's one sad truth in life I've found While journeying east and west - The only folks we really wound Are those we love the best. We flatter those we scarcely know, We please the fleeting guest, And deal full many a thoughtless blow To those who love us best. ~Ella Wheeler Wilcox
It makes you sit back and kind of cast your eyes down, or drop your head in a bit of shame, because it is so true.
"And deal full many a thoughtless blow to those who love us best."
We are always so worried about how others perceive us that we try so hard to please and do for those that probably and most likely know us the least, but for those that love us the most, accepting us in our faults and in our strengths, tend to get the worst of us most times, while the world outside of our loved ones circle gets the best of us, or what we show them is the best of us.
Let's discuss on why you think that is? How do we change that? Is it important to change it? How do we recognize if we are one of those that give the "thoughtless blows to those who love us best", because I bet you could think of people off hand who do this to you, but are you also one who does this to those closest to you?
