We all have people in our lives that are difficult to love, maybe even hard to like, they zig when we zag and we can’t seem to ever be on the same page. The reasons are varied but if you dig deep enough you’ll usually find insecurity at the root and it’s typical to find incompatible insecurity on both sides of the rub. These relationships can be the ones that miracles are found in. As we get closer to God, become more like Him, our compassion for those that are different or difficult increases. We get better at seeing the wonderful things about people; we recognize the weaknesses in others as being not different than our own and our hearts change. I’ve seen these types of relationships become some of the richest.

    I love this, because I’m a “difficult to love, maybe even hard to like” person. But, as one I’m able to see the same type of people differently. I can see past the hurt, insecurity and pain to the real person deep inside. I guess it takes one to know and understand one when you have worn the same shoes.

    Thank you for this encouragement. This post sums up one of the interpersonal relationships in my life to a ‘T’ and I am hopeful that it becomes just what you described in your last sentence. have a great day, my friend.
