You Never Really Know

As each day passes you never really know what may happen next.  Within the past thirty days, three people I knew passed.  All three were unexpected.  As children part of the time we liked the unknown and other times we didn’t.  As we grew we began to know what to expect a reasonable amount of time.  By the time we were adults it was at least fifty percent of the time that we thought we might figure out what might occur. As we began dating we would eventually believe we came to know the person we were dating.  However, as in life, things change and suddenly the relationship ends or the other party becomes violent.  One time I worked with a girl who was engaged.  She was very happy.  One Monday she walked into work no longer wearing her engagement ring.  I waited for her to tell me.  She said she had broken it off with her fiancé.  She told me that you never really know what a person is like until a crisis or an incident occurs.  In her case, he lost his temper and began smashing furniture. She told me she would never want to be married to a man with such a vile temper.  She was very wise. When I wrote my book, “Misplaced Trust,” the stories I wrote about were true.  The participants in each story were people who couldn’t believe what had happened to them.  They were mostly family members that they grew up with, spent holidays with, went on trips, and in general had a positive relationship.  Then once the money came into play everything changed.  To say you never really know is an understatement. Often families never get past their actions and do not forgive each other. It is a poor way to go through life and anger and resentment can destroy an individual.  What is sad is that a number of these people eventually felt extreme guilt and had no idea how to reconnect with their family members.  The best and only way to ease a person’s conscious is to make the effort.  If you start fresh with your family, the guilt disappears and everyone is happy again.
