Reading other people’s signs

I read a blog post today We Must See Past What it Seems…..It almost had me in tears. I lie, I had tears streaming down my face.

It talks about looking past what you see, behind the masks, reading the signs of what the person is actually telling us.

If the phone isn’t being answered, if they suddenly stop chatting to you the way they used too, it’s all signs, and you have to work out what the sign says.

Sometimes I wish I had a sign. Only, I’m not sure what my sign would say…

“I’m a step-mother, who is seen as a step-monster, but I’m only doing my best.”

“I have a past, but I’m doing my best to fix my future. Be gentle with me.”

“I just want to be loved.”

    I think it’s true that signs can often be there, but I think it is more true that we are often looking for signs that aren’t really there. Missed phone calls and less time to chat often just means a busier than usual friend. These days people are sometimes paranoid about the smallest things and over-analysing just makes them sad. Sometimes it just really is what it is.

    Have a great week. x

    Oh yes, I do think that is a very fair statement, and one I know that I’ve been guilty of!!
