Relationships are a natural part of life. As humans we are built for them. Sometimes however they go off center. Many times for reasons unknown and not even because we have done anything other than be ourselves. It hurts when you give friendships, and relationships your all only to be bitten. Most of the time we work hard to reconcile them. To find some meaning behind the sting.
But, do we ask the bee why it stung us? Do we question the wasps? Do we interrogate the adders?
So this piece was written after being unexpectedly stung by someone I thought was a friend. Being so blindsided it made me wonder, “Is this person really my friend, or is this a one sided relationship?” I had a decision to make. Try to find out why the person stung me and try to repair the breach. OR-put salve on the injury and stay away from the bee. What are your thoughts?
