Not My Tissue!


Don’t let someone else’s issues become your issues! Have you ever had an experience where someone was rude to you for no reason. Or have you even been rude to someone for no reason? I’m sure we have all been in both places before.

If we allow someone else’s issues to become our issues it can off-set our day! Know what I mean? We allow their comment to “mask” the rest of our day.

We could be having a wonderful day — everything going in our favor but if something happens negatively we allow that negativity to become the thermostat for our day. Ever been there? {both of my hands are raised} 🙂

I was having a conversation with a friend who was bothered about how someone treated them and my response was “It’s their issue, not yours! Don’t let someone else’s issue become yours.” In other words, don’t own their issues!

I’m sorry but when I look at the word issue, I can’t help but think of a tissue. Why? I don’t know? 🙂

So work with me here…If I just put the letter “T” in front of “issue” this is what would be said — It’s their tissue, not yours. Don’t let someone else’s tissue become yours.

Who wants to use someone’s used tissue?

I don’t know about you but I have enough boogies to take care of in my own nose. 🙂 With that said, the next time someone has an issue (tissue), let them keep it. Don’t take it!

P.S. – I’m preaching to myself 🙂

I Peter 4:8 “And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”

Joyfully His!
