You’re Happy, are they?

(Photo credit to Don Wind)
I’m sure you’re happy, but are they?

I don’t mean the less privileged 

Or the “lost” in this world who can’t find their way to their “source” (Talk for some other time)

Or the weighed-down and broken-hearted

No! I mean those you thought should be but who never really liked who you are

Yes! I said it.

They actually either like you for what you do or what you give or maybe like that you are against what they are against

Trust me, they are mostly great to have for your well-being

In fact, they are perfect to keep you on your toes.

But here lies the problem, if you mistake them for people who love you for who you are?

You are in deeper trouble than I anticipated

You expect them to be truly happy when you are happy

You lie. It’s not possible. Ask my friend, he told me of them too. 

They are sometimes seeking your next ditch. Not intentionally, but they think subconsciously you should fall soon because how can you have had it all figured out till now?

How should you have made it this far?

Won’t you fall anytime soon?

How can we actually be of help to this “have-it-all”?

They really don’t know your real story!

How can they?

They were not there when you fall, and try to walk again. 

They were not there when you even tried crawling and not sit in a place as expected.

They were not there when you bruised and hurt and even almost gave up!

They simply were not there!

So how do you expect them to be happy for you when you are now happy?

Are they your true family or friends?

Cos those are the only people I know will laugh when you do, cry when you cry, and be truly there for you.

Even though not always…

Let me surprise you a bit…

I know one friend, we met in 2007. I have probably been the worst friend to him but he just won’t leave me. He practically has kept all his promises. He is the only relationship I’ve kept so far that has taught me true love and helped sustained my other relationships. With family, people, work and even with my source. Some already know who I’m talking about. He took me off religion and traditional worship and taught me he has never come to judge me. People forget that and turn into my judges and accusers cos they only can be as their father the devil. I owe no one an apology today and this is it! His name is Jesus. Beautiful Jesus. He’s precisely the best that has ever happened to me. And for those yet to encounter him… My prayer is that you do and simply find one person who is really happy for you when you are truly happy.

These were a summary or rather excerpts from his words… (cannot afford to plagiarize my best friend and lover)

Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.  I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?  No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man.  Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,  that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”  For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

John 3:11‭-‬18 NIV

Thank you dear reader and hope you can truly find happiness to be able to love people for who they are rather than for weird things and then be happy for them…
