    Thank God for all that I have been through and all the people who stuck by me despite every stupid decision I make. Thank God for these angels.
    I am incredibly thankful for their loyalty and their trust in someone as imperfect as me.
    I thank God because He is really the one that has every right not to take me back – but He did. Or rather, He never let go.

    What do you want to thank God for?

    I can totally relate with this.

    I can completely relate with this article.
    I’m of the view though, that each person has a different PoV regarding a situation and in a lot of cases, a third person, who’s looking at the situation from outside has a clearer perspective. I’ve been in some such situations myself, acting as a third party, and I’ve felt an obligation to apprise my loved ones of the possible risks that I see in the direction they’ve chosen. This gives me two things. Firstly, the relief that I’ve fulfilled my responsibility towards my friend/loved one. Secondly, I’ve made it clear that I’m loyal to them because I’ve expressed my honest opinion before them.

    This is a beautiful reminder for something I encounter quite frequently with my family and struggle with. Thank you!

    Loved this: ‘we can love completely without complete undertanding’.
