This is a conversation i just had with my cousin whose mom was killed last night.
Me and her were talking cuz she also lost her uncle 1 month and 1 day ago. And a few years ago she lost ehr brother to suicide.
So as we were talking she tells me "god wouldnt give you anymore than you can handle". and this is my response
me: i would agree with that but i cant
me: if you think about life. if people could handle what was given to them, why do some commit suicide? Why do some of them turn to drugs? Alcohol? Now not everyone turns to this stuff when faced with hard times, but there are alot that do and they dont come back. does that make sense?
her: Yeah I can understand where your coming from
me: there are people who can handle it but then there are people who cant. If people do take the time to stop and think about what they are going through and sit down and breathe then maybe yes. but not everyone can do that. Also there are those people who are going through so much and people do say "god wouldnt give you anymore than you can handle" but im reality yes he would. trial and tribulation. its his way of seeing what you can and cant handle and if you are strong enough to "come back" from it so to speak. And when someone is going through alot, really the last thing they probably want to hear is "god wouldnt give you anymore than you can handle", and i say this because (and i am not a christian but i do believe in higher powers, no one knows what they are thinking or what they have planned for someone in this life or the next life. does that make sense?
her: Yeah I see what your saying
me: i think you are the first one who does. lol
her: Lol. Really?
me: yea really
her: Oh wow
me: im friends with alot of Christians(and i have no problem with the christian religion mind you) but alot of christians dont want to see anything from a different point of view. Not all christians are like that but alot that i have come across are
her: yeah i know what you meanl
