Frustration


image is from...

Where it not for my christian catholic ethic; i feel certain that i when i die, i would morph instantly into a superheroine; glamorous shapley and such a powerhouse of rage against the bad guys; swooping down without mercy, tearing them limb by limb, and binding them into chains of never ending release; without thoughts of societal ills, and poverty, and abuse and whatever else excuses are rendered for crime in today's world

Instead here i am, in the mind set of, the very difficult task of forgiveness and the hope of; peace on earth; and eternal life, etc etc etc etc etc etc etc...

what is causing this mini rant you might ask; yesterday right in front of my house a young man snatched my purse and ran off; leaving me fallen, and bruised; a stranger took me in his car to the police station; all this time i'm screaming my head off tears streaming down my face i get to the station and i'm out of breath and in having an anxiety attack; took a while before i could even give a report to the police

stony hard paved street --
void of frustration between
the salt of my tears

Gillena, sad and bad news...But we can be happy that you are safe back home,

crime in today's world -- i write pages of it as part of my work; But I know I can do nothing about it, here or afterlife -- except mind my own business,

wishes,
devika

What a terrible experience this must have been. Take care of yourself, and try not to be too bitter about the entire human race.

Adelaide

Oh Gillena, I share your tears. I can only echo Adelaide's thoughts--try not become bitter.

Oh my dear I am so sorry, my mind imagined my being with you and running like the wind to jump n him, and give him agood trashing with your purse so he'll learn respect...The World hurts...and I hate it when my friends, my lovely friends get hurt...and that kind of attack always hurts the soul...I'm thinking of you

But, you know, that difficult task of forgiveness is the most rewarding one I know.

Sorry to hear of your pain. It's very generous of you to share this with us.

Blessings.

Dear Gillena sorry to hear of your experience, been there myself twice, once barely escaped death. I found peace and healing by helping young disadvantaged children in the hopes that they wouldn't grow up to do things like that if they had caring people in their lives. It helped to heal me and the kids I think, good luck on your journey to peace and understanding
