Blackberry Thyme Yogurt Popsicles
How do you handle feeling left out?
Do you get angry and write the person off? Do you get hurt and start to fall into the self-pity trap? Do you do a combination of the two? Are you indifferent?
Cason is just now getting to that stage where the kids he plays with have opinions on who they “want” to play with. Sometimes people get left out. Sometimes Cason get’s left out. The other day he came running up to me in tears because he was over at a friends house playing. That friend had some other friends over that he didn’t know. Cason went outside to play and was told he couldn’t get on the John Deere truck and those friends drove off without him. He stood on the back patio for a little bit, turned around and started walking inside … on the verge of tears. As soon as he made eye contact with me he ran into my arms and just started sobbing.
He was hurt. He didn’t know what to do with that hurt so he just cried. As a mom my heart broke when I saw how much he was hurt. No one wants to be the one left out. I listened to his hurt, encouraged him and told him it’s ok, then walked him back outside. Two minutes later he was running around having fun again!
The other day I was scrolling through Facebook and saw that a couple friends of mine all went on a trip together. As I looked at the picture I started to get jealous, then hurt that I wasn’t invited, and then onto our favorite stage .. the “woe is me, no one likes me .. I’m about to cry” stage. I called Mike and he helped me process through those feelings.
Then I realized .. they are the exact same feelings Cason experienced a couple of days ago! So funny how God does that.
There is nothing wrong with feeling hurt or disappointed. But it’s what you do with those feelings that matter. Act in grace, get back out there and begin to grow those friendships again! It does no one any good to sit and linger on those feelings … so instead act in the opposite spirit. I guarantee it will heal any hurt you have and mend those wounds!
