Bitterness - Disappointments

Recently I've had the opportunity to meet up with some long-time friends that I haven't seen for several years.

I think the saddest part of such meet-ups is when you talk to your friends and realise that they've become (more) bitter than the last you spoke to them. More often than not, it's because of disappointments that they have experienced with people and life through the years. People that are close to us like our parents & friends are often the source And it's sad cos they have to carry it with them through the prime of their age. And usually such dear ones are those most resistant to religion cos to them, it's irrational and often forgiveness is the hardest thing for them to do. Almost as if they would rather die than to forgive.


Why allow those foolish people who do not know how to appreciate & love us to "determine" our lives ever after?

Please. We all deserve a better life. And it's not just materially.
