What do you do when someone tells you that people whom you thought were your friends are really talking about you and putting you down behind your back? This is something that has been on my mind for a while now and I thought that since it’s been a while, I would finally address the issue for I see people who know what’s going on getting uncomfortable when they see me. It’s almost like I can hear what they are thinking:
“Does she know?” “Should I tell her what’s going on?” “I don’t want to get involved but, this isn’t right.” “Damn, this is awkward. What do I do?”
Well, I am here now to address the issue.
It was brought to my attention about a month ago that two people that I thought were my friends have actually been talking about me behind my back and making fun of me. When I found out, I was upset but decided that I have more important things to worry about in my life right now. If you don’t know, I am currently 5 months pregnant with my first child and she (yes, it’s a girl) and my husband is what I am focusing on. This is my first pregnancy and the things on my mind currently are “What should the baby wear when I bring her home”? “How am I going to decorate the baby’s room”? “The baby shower is coming up. I need to get the invitations out.” “Am I 100% sure about naming the baby, Abby?” “I need to talk to H. R. and see how much maternity leave I am looking at.” There are more important things in my life to think about right now than who’s talking about me behind my back. Dealing with this isn’t really a priority for me.
Yesterday, it was brought to my attention again that these two people were making fun of things that I had posted on my Facebook page on Wednesday and again saying things about me. I’ve kept my mouth shut for a month but, I’ve decided that I am going to address the matter.
I’m not going to say who these two people are. It really doesn’t matter. But to those who know that it’s happening for I know that there is more than one person who knows, I want you to know that, I know what’s going on. I haven’t mentioned it, asked around about these two or said anything to these two people for, again, I have more important things to worry about. And… these two people making comments and saying things about me, well… it doesn’t make themselves look good. So… I just wanted to say, I know what’s going on.
Does it bother me? Yeah, to a point it bothers me. It’s troublesome to hear from people that someone who you thought was a friend is actually not and there’s not a whole lot you can do about what is going on. No matter what you do in life, it’s unfortunate that people are going to talk about you no matter what. You have to decide, what is more important? Right now, my main focus is on my family.
Am I going to do anything about this? Am I going to run and tattle on them? Right now, no. At the moment, its rumor and I don’t have true and hard evidence. However, I am reminded about what God says. Romans 12:19 says, “Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.” I’m really just trying to take comfort and know that God is handling the problem and soon, I will have a beautiful baby girl that I helped bring into this world and this irritation will soon just be a distant memory.
Everyone gets their comeuppance. I really don’t have to do anything. God’s vengeance is a million times stronger than what mine is. He knows what can really hurt and hinder us and make us think and wonder.
So, I just wanted to say, I know what’s happening. At this point in time, I’m not going to do anything. I’m not going to say anything to these two people. I’m going to let God handle the situation. He already knows what’s going on. And soon, this situation will be remedied.
It’s sad that I haven’t written in a while on my notes and that for the first time, in a long time, the subject is about people talking about others behind their back. However, I just wanted to let people know, I’m aware of the situation and its being taken care of… supernaturally.
I hope that everyone has a good day.
