People Are Such Disappointments

I've always known that you cannot put your trust in people, and that somewhere down the line, people might end up being such a disappointment. However, I try to be optimistic and give each relationship a fair chance at becoming something great. Of course, I'm no expert at relationships, but I've had quite a few and they usually end almost the same. Even when relationships become great, the greatness fades, and disappointment tries to make a comeback.
 
On April 17, 2016 I found out that my Dad had passed. And although my relationship with my Dad was not perfect, it was our relationship and I truly loved him. His death was expected, but at the time unexpected. And as much as I prepared myself for this day, when it came, I felt unprepared. I had my several moments of weakness, but God! People that I thought were for me, seemed against me. People that I felt would've supported me, didn't. People that I didn't expect to care, cared the most.  Things were said from mouths that belonged shut. But in my moments of anger, sadness, and weakness, God showed me his love through people, and God showed me how the enemy can also use people to try to come against me.  
 
At the end of the day, people are only a disappointment, if you allow them to be. Have no expectations of people, that way no matter what they do or say, it will never truly affect you. The enemy can never steal your joy, unless you allow it. During my sadness God blessed me. And in my moments of great joy and gratefulness, he keeps on blessing me. Put your trust in God and not man, because God will never disappoint.

  1. I enjoyed how you written this. And I know exactly what you mean. I have a few family members that dibble and dabble in all the wrong areas not concerning them. Sometimes I just want to hand them the mirror.
