Why do we let the same people hurt us over and over again?

Why can’t we see what’s coming at us?

Why can’t we move out of the way and not let that train hit us?

We hear the train racing down the track.

We let it hit us, time and time again.

We get hit so many times, that we say

It’s ok.

I’m used to it

or its fine.

Then we apologize to the person who hurt us.

Time and time again the same scenario

Forgive and forget

Forgive and move on

But are your walls now up?

Are you cautious now?

Or do we let the same pain and suffering in again?

Why do we forgive and why do we let people back in?

It is fair to let people in, but only at a distance?

Does it make us an awful person, to not allow them back in?

Does grace mean letting them in too?

or does it just mean not carrying the angry around with us?

We offer compassion but where is our bliss?

Where is our peace and joy?

Do we protect ourselves, or for the sake of grace, allow them back in.
