It prickles my aorta when a requester accused me of not just wanting to give my hand, it is totally absurd. And that is my emotion as of the time being~HURTING. I didn’t justify myself further, and let her think whatever she has in mind to control the damage. Vindication is tough to attain especially if you’re dealing with a narrow minded person (not at all times though).
Failure to grant one’s request due to an acceptable reasons connotes anger and hatred to the requester. Why can’t just human being whole heartedly accept that there are times we can’t grant their plea rather than jumping into wrong conclusions. I won’t deny I was one, but life has changed. Could be part of maturity, and applying what I’ve learnt from the wisdom of God. Lately I have a mantra, IN SILENCE THERE IS PEACE, and it never fails me.
