Would I have done differently?

I don't know if you ever watch CSI or not, but it's one of my favorite shows. Anyway, a few weeks ago they showed a young girl that had hair all over and how her mom left, letting the girl think she had died, because she couldn't handle it. It wasn't the girl she and her condition that she couldn't handle so much as the way people treated her. It caused the girl to stay inside all the time and let mom handle everything.

Now the first thing I thought when I saw that was, "How can a mother do that to her child?" (You've probably done the same thing.) But after I had thought about it for a while, I wondered, would I have done the same thing or would I have stuck by my child? It's easy to say what I would have done, considering I'm not in that position. It amazes me how I look at things right off the bat instead of thinking things through and trying to put myself in that person shoes. I try to tell myself that I'm not judgemental, but after this little episode, I wonder. I didn't like what I learned about myself that night. I found out that I do judge people and situations.

I realize that I might not be painting a good picture of myself, but I wanted to let you know about this anyway. It's made me take a hard look at myself.

I hope you have a blessed day. God be with you always.
