Deal with it…

IT IS WHAT IT IS; DEAL WITH IT! – unknown

This morning while getting ready I noticed a phrase in my mind….

The Phrase: I WOULD RATHER NOT HAVE TO DEAL WITH THAT….

I have heard this phrase  many times from myself and from others. This phrase is often used in conjunction with a situation or a task that one does not like or want to be bothered with…

A conflict situation between people or friends is one of the most common situations I hear this phrase come up.

So what does “I would rather not have to deal with that” really mean??

It is a statement of DENIAL ….by saying it we begin to shut down our thinking mind and numb our feelings to those around us as if the conflict and uncomfortableness of it just  ISN’T HAPPENING…and so we simply begin to NOT DEAL with what is happening between us and others. This affectively erodes communications between people, causing a divide that seems too wide to resolve.

It also implys that you are RIGHT and the other person is WRONG, and that you feel that for you to have to deal with this is BELOW you and doesnt really deserve your ATTENTION…

The best way to have better relationships is to FACE whatever is going on in them and DEAL WITH IT…

Sometimes you will be in the wrong…sometimes others will be in the wrong…

but if  we DEAL with it both will come out with restoration and forgiveness if …

WE LISTEN  to eachother!!!

Watch for this statement in your mind today : I would rather not have to deal with that…

PS: its not just in relationships it can also be said about cleaning your house..:0) HAPPY WATCHING!!

One thought on “Deal with it…

  1. You’re so right! Dealing with it seeps into every area of our lives. For me sometimes it getting groceries, I HATE IT!! but I need to just deal with it and get it done with instead of trying to put it off. 🙂 Great post!!
