It's sad to me when a good relationship between people can turn sour over basically what is a difference of opinion. When people have a good knowledge of each other's characters and their beliefs in general and think about all the good times that they have shared and why they actually like this person can turn it all around in a moment of anger and decide not to talk to them or face them again for however long? The ripple effect of making such a decision travels widely. Do they not care that we are on this earth for a short while and then it is too late to say the words that need to be said.
P.S. I am part of this communtiy because I am 44 have two boys nearly 7 and 8 and two older step children 20 and 22.
P.S.S. I am reading all replies and Thank you all for sharing thoughts and insights. It seems that there are many underlying issues within each individual which either consciously or subconsciously contribute to our behaviors and participation within our relationships and I am really trying hard to put into practise the wisdom of this quote.
"accept the things I cannot change, have courage to change the things I can and have the wisdom to know the difference"
I believe this applies to all areas in our lives, and whilst I get it, need to apply it and live it!
