Question through a higher Perspective

Why is this happening? Why do people not understand me? Why me?

Being human means being self-absorbed sometimes. We all fall victim to taking things personally. It’s human nature to reflect about circumstances and actions of people on a personal level. But this goes against you because human nature goes against God’s nature. It’s just the ego speaking lies to you.

Yes, circumstances come into your life for reasons. But reasons are not within details or people. Reasons are self improvement. This is confusing through a world perspective. It may look exact opposite — self-involved. But the difference is key. The difference is HOW it’s looked at and not why. If we pray for a glimpse of God’s perspective, it becomes clear. Eyes focus on a bigger picture.

A situation taken personally can drive a person crazy — why does this person not like you or why do they not understand you.  All the while, circumstances revolving you, only manifested for you. They are for self reflection in order to grow and move in the direction God is leading you. And God leaves nothing to waste. The same situation is also for that other person, for reason of their own.

Love and be loved. This needs focus. If we are looking at why a person does something then we are looking at it wrong. It doesn’t matter why. The answer is obvious —  because something needs to be worked out. Therefore, instead of ridicule or self-doubt, we need to strive for compassion and love no matter what.

It’s human nature to see the world against you. But it’s far from it. The world is for you and you are for it. Until our eyes focus on the world’s entirety, we cannot begin to better it. Anything and anyone who inhabits it is to be loved by you.

1 Samuel 16:7 ESV But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”

Ephesians 4:2-3 ESV With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

  1. Thank you, I needed to read that. I have been going through the what about me thing this week feeling like certain people don’t understand me. I was reminded by someone I will never meet that I was set on a different path and don’t pay attention to their lack of attention. reading your article pulled all in.

    1. My whole life has been a million questions consisting of WHY. Trust me when I say, I understand you completely. It’s so daunting sometimes when your life is full of misunderstanding. This here is a reminder that despite our never meeting, we are all here for each other! I hope you never let others fill you with doubt. I hope you always believe in yourself and continue doing what you are meant to do! Good vibes and God bless you!
