Day four as a new member of She Writes

So much for attempting to fly under the radar!!! Day four started very early (1am) with all kinds of drama. I went to my email and found a negative reply from that same group member. This time I allowed myself to become upset and responded in like manner. When I realized just how I had fallen into the trap of negativity I decided that this was not my goal for coming to She Writes or for joining that group. So I resigned from the group because if I can't be a help or learn then I served no real purpose for enhancing the group.

There are some really nice people in the group and there are some who aren't but really isn't that the way of the world? So on my fourth day I would like to just clear up this whole misunderstanding.

I am very passionate in my belief in Christ. I know I have found my truth and I know what He has done in my life. When I said yes to my calling as a minister I vowed to be the best preacher that I could be. That I would do what I was called to do, and that's give the Word of God as its been given to me with all the love I feel. However my job is only getting the message out I am not the Almighty I can not force anyone to accept it. God gave us all a choice we have free will that even He won't cross.


I say this because I believe and I am very passionate about what I know and that should be fine. But what some of you don't know is that I am accepting of you for what you know and believe. I'm not condeming anyone for not following what I'm professing. I'm just letting you know what I've found. This is the way I found truth. My way may not be your way. God in His mercy has given us many paths to follow to get to Him. So if your path is different from mine so be it...let your light shine. Someone needs to know that. Be passionate about what you believe or what you have found. That is your truth. But don't hinder me for letting the truth that I know out because someone that needs what I have to offer is looking for this path to take.

As for Ms. Negative I will start by saying I do apologize to you for saying that I did not like you. I will admit I caught hurt feelings when you attacked me for being who I am. However I can't say I don't like you when I don't know you or what you stand for. I will say I don't like your opinion of me and who I stand for. I will say that I don't like how you came after me with preconceived theories of who you thought I was. I thank you for breaking me in and showing me the groups I really need to follow.

Now to end this really long post. Hello I am Rev. LaWaughn Rouse and I am honored to be a member of She Writes in time you all will get to know me. Ms. Negative I offer you the olive branch I was not trying to be arrogant in my truth just confident in God as my truth. Peace and love. Day four as a new member will end great and drama free.

Love you my sisters keep getting the words out people need to read and learn....with me included 

Just waiting to see what day five has to offer

    Thank you Cathy and Kelli I needed the encouragement and I know if you are like me writing about things that upset me helps me to keep my head. It also allows me to see another picture. I'm not always right and sometimes I come across like I'm all that, but really that's not the case. I just want to laugh,smile, love,and be at peace in my vintage years (for you youngsters that's age 50 plus). I mean really at this age I earned at least that much!!! Again thank you I still have so much to learn and I'm growing everyday. Thank God for that because anything that does not grow dies and I've got a lot of life yet to live. Have a blessed day and remain the blessings that you both are.

    You write in a really personable way. I've been reading your past posts and I feel like you're talking directly to me. I hope everything resolves itself before this person drives you nuts.

    People are mean for a reason, and it has to do with them, not you. It takes patience and practice, but don't make other people's issues your own. That's what they want. People attack others because it's easier than dealing with what's inside them that makes them want to strike out. I always (try) for the "kill them with kindness" option, like your olive branch. Let it roll, like water off a duck's back. And, when that fails, go to kick-boxing class and beat the drap out of something!  :)
