Learn from My Mistakes: Motives Edition

Sometimes, there is no why.

I used to waste time wondering why certain people did petty, immature, and selfish things. There must be a REASON, otherwise why would they BOTHER? Is she just trying to make me angry? Get revenge for some perceived slight? Jason’s ex used to talk about “winning her war” against him/us – was every new irritation a new battle?

Then it dawned on me.

Sometimes, there is no why.

Sometimes, people do petty and immature things because they are petty and immature people. They don’t care one way or the other how their actions affect you.

I realize this should have been obvious, but figuring it out has given me a lot of peace this season.

And that’s your Friday food for thought.

What.
