Tonight by sheer accident as I was looking for a message I’d sent on FaceBook, my son came in to show me something and turned out giving me a Facebook lesson (our children are fantastic social media teachers).
He pointed out that FB has ‘another’ message folder. He added it was one of their biggest flaws – because so many people miss messages without even realising it. I discovered several messages sitting in this folder, some dating back as far as November last year.
My instant response was a sick feeling in my stomach wondering what these beautiful people who took the time to message me must think, having never received a response or acknowledgement. Then I was extremely grateful, as my son had brought to my attention something I was completely unaware of and I was (although very late) able to reply to each one.
It really made me stop and think how easy our minds can wander off onto the path of unhelpful thoughts and beliefs. It’s easy to assume the worst or think we’ve done something wrong or in this case; feel terrible and dwell on something that simply cannot be changed.
There is always a reason. You may never find out that reason but you can choose to act and move forward in that moment for your highest good and the highest good of all.
PS For those who also didn’t know about FB's ‘other’ message box you may want to check it, then respond with love and honesty.
