Even at the risk of injury, I'll choose tender over tough!
I saw this on Facebook this morning.
My first reaction to it was, "Yeah."
Then I read it again and thought, "No."
I agree that I cannot keep carving out space in my day to day life for people who make no effort to be in it. But kick them out of my heart? No way.
I may try to put someone out of my thoughts at times, which is easier said than done;
stop reserving so much space in my HEAD for trying to figure out why someone doesn't make any effort.
But my heart is another matter. I don't kick people out of their space in my heart.
Soft hearts have broken places in them that sometimes hurt.
Trying to develop a heart with no empty, achy spots is not a good solution.
In fact, it sounds to me like the beginnings of a hard heart.
Something I never want.
But I do intend to fill my LIFE with people who at least show some interest in being part of it!
