People cannot give you what they do not have. At times it isn’t that our expectations for others are too high, too demanding or out of line with what we deserve… it is that the one we expect it from does not have it to give. Many things can contribute to this sad truth such as: tragedy, abuse, trauma, loss or tremendous amounts of stress. Becoming angry or resentful accomplishes nothing but increases the pain for all involved.
If someone cannot give you what you need, sometimes the best action is forgiveness and the space and time to heal. You are are worthy of being treated with respect, honor, and love… if someone is unable or unwilling to love you in the way you deserve there is no need to become resentful… pray for their healing and gently release them to God.
