Butt Hurt

ImageThis isn’t directed at any one person. So if someone gets butt hurt or takes it personally know that it isn’t because of what I said, but the way it was interpreted. Or maybe it is something that one needs to look deep inside and figure out why you are butt hurt to begin with. 

Definition of Butt Hurt- offended, upset, or angry, usually by a small slight or a friendly insult.

I’m pretty sure that I’m not the only one who has ever been butt hurt over something stupid. Sometimes I have a way of blowing things out of proportion. Almost always I have someone telling me that I took something the wrong way, which in most cases is true. But, what about those people who get butt hurt over silly things and can’t get over it? 

ImageI have to say that I have a problem with people that get butt hurt over stupid things. Well, not really butt hurt over stupid things, but allowing that to get in the way of relationships. A prime example is politics. During the time of the elections people were literally unfriending people over someone they don’t know or what party someone votes for. If they are a Democrat they must be the scum of the earth, so off they go as a friend. What is sad is that they may have been lifetime friends or family members and now they no longer exist in the minds of the butt hurt friend. 

What about that person who doesn’t show up at a party because they forgot?  The person that is butt hurt takes it personally because the other person was unable to be there. So off they go as a friend and drop into the bottomless pit with all other people that have butt hurted someone. 

As a Christian, I find it interesting when I find another Christian who can’t get over being butt hurt.  I think of the Bible verse in the Bible, “Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” 

ImageNow, my thought on this verse is that we are to forgive one another. If we want to be forgiven, then we must also forgive. I guess I have a problem when I see a Christian who knows that they should be forgiven and have asked for forgiveness themselves and they can’t extend the same hand to another. For me, I’m very grateful that I’m forgiven. Even though I may butt hurt someone with this post or other posts and I guess in a strange way I’m OK with that. 

You may wonder why I’m OK with butt hurting someone. If not, you may not want to read anymore. So close your eyes and skip to the next blog. But if someone gets butt hurt over not forgiving someone, then they need to examine themselves. I’m pretty sure each and everyone of us has said something stupid, didn’t show up somewhere on time or some other horrible crime like forget a birthday or that the moon rose or the sun sets. 

Some people need to get over the petty stuff going on and realize there are more important things going on around us. Just the other day this young girl dies and her family is mourning her loss. I bet they will look back at all the petty things that happened and wish to God that they could take back moments and the time spent with that loved one. So what if someone forgets something or a date. That is trivial. The person is important.

ImageShoot I have gotten butt hurt over alot of things in my life and things my daughters have said or done. And I’m positive I butt hurt them, but at the end of the day no matter how butt hurt I may be, I love them. My niece that lived with me all through high school has pushed my buttons and butt hurt me and I did the same with her. No matter what she does and says, I love her too. If I counted all the times I butt hurt someone or someone butt hurted me, I would be the only person on a deserted island and there would be nobody to blame but myself.

Basically I just wanted to say that is stupid things worth holding onto and letting them get in the way of a relationship with someone you love or care about? Has someone forgiven you for something you did and didn’t deserve said forgiveness? Have you never offended a person and bad someone feel bad? If you said yes to this, then more than likely there is some state of disillusionment going on in your world. If you want to be forgiven, then you need to forgive too and stop letting stupid petty things get in the way of living life and having happy relationships. 

Shoot, now I lost track of my topic, so I guess I should stop this because I may rant about rainbows and Bible studies. Don’t ask! If you want to know, you can read the blog below because they got me butt hurt, but now I’m kinda over it. 🙂
