Good morning to the bloggers once again. I have been thinking lately, why do people betray each other? Why do they choose to rather take the sinners side of the road? It is a big question, and I would like to share why I ask this.
I am a competitive swimmer, and recently my coach asked me why I haven't been training so hard. I told him the matters and he said that if I wish to talk about anything else, I need only ask and he will put aside what he is doing and come to me. I took that as the truth and told him everything that is wrong and troubling me. This was three weeks ago. Last week I had another problem and went to him, as he said I can trust him. I think that the matter was maybe too serious or possibly too deep for him to handle. He told me sort it out myself and hasn't spoken to me since. Now the question stands: why did he tell me that he wanted me to tell him everything and when I warned him that these things go far and beyond what most can handle, he still said AI should tell him "because a coach and a swimmer hide nothing from each other". It hurt me deeply that he chose to leave me in the dark waters. I put my trust in him, did I not?
We get told by society to lean on others when we need to. But what of God? I know that I made the mistake of rather talking to another person than to pray to God.
The lesson is this, and I learnt it the hard way, we shouldn't want to lay our problems and questions on others because they can't give us the right answers. Yes, there are those who are chosen by God to speak his word and to help the helpless. So rather choose them, than the ones whom you think are not pure of heart.
I hope this makes sense.
