WHY? The question everyone wants to know the answer to.....

“God you said you’d always be here for me. I’ve been spending all my time praying and asking you guidance and this is how you repay me. How dare you make a believer out of me! How dare you allow me to praise you daily when I could have been leading myself. I can’t believe you allowed me to do this.
I can’t believe you. How can I ever trust in you again. From now on when I am in need it will not be your name that I will call. I promise you that I will seek guidance from within and since you are no longer a part of me. I’ll lead me. I’ll trust me. I’ll do me regardless. We are no longer one. I don’t know you and you never knew me. I..I…I hate you!” –passage from “How dare you make a believer out of me?” by Erica Coleman ©2010

Everyday we are faced with different challenges in which we look to others for help, advice and sometimes compassion. Have you ever thought about how life would be without people? Without a higher power in which you put all your trust and beliefs in?

Today I asked my family and friends to assist me with coming up with a new blog idea. I asked them to send me 3 words or topics that I would be able to write about. In doing so my mom sent me these 3 words : betrayal, loyalty, power.

Have you ever thought about the decisions that you make affecting those around you? Well if you are a member of a family that loves you, respects you and believes in you as a person you would think that one would always keep their families best interest at heart. You would think that if not but to uphold your families name you would do GREAT things to keep your foundation solid.

However, we were all created as individuals in which the decisions we make are usually very selfish. We tend to think more about the “me” factor versus we. In doing so, others get hurt both knowingly and unknowingly.

The character from the passage above was faced with a decision in which she chose to use her power as a women to seduce a man that she was very attracted to. This man never acknowledged her presence. Never pursued her in any kind of way. But she decided that she wanted him and would use everything in her power to get him. She spent months lusting after him until one day he decided to give in to her pursuit and go out to dinner with her. After dinner she wanted him in her bed so bad that she was willing to do whatever it took to get him there. Needless to say he agreed.

Six months later at her annual checkup she found out that she had AIDS. Filled with shock and disbelief she left the doctor’s office and never uttered another word about the information that she had been given.

After several months of being in denial she decided that she wanted to do something about it. She was going to strike hard and fast. She no longer had a good reason to live. She felt that everything that she had earned at this point in her life meant nothing. She didn’t care about her family or friends. What would they think if they knew the truth?

With nothing to lose, she set out to destroy other families, hopes, dreams and lives. Blaming all of her problems on people and GOD.

Why are we as human beings so quick to blame everyone but ourselves?
Why is that when we are faced with challenges and the outcome isn’t favorable we choose to duck and run?
Why is it so hard to live a good life in today’s society without being victimized?
Why do people question God whenever something in life doesn’t work in their favor?

If you know Why please share your answers with me?

Today has been a very frustrating day filled with lots of Why’s for me. But I wanted to write something real and true. Sorry if this offends you.
