“When you squeeze an orange you get orange juice because that’s what’s inside. The same principal is true about you. When someone squeezes you, puts pressure on you, what comes out is what is inside. if you don’t like what’s inside, you can change it by changing your thoughts.”
I just read the above and thought to myself, it’s so true. Some people upset you and anger you so much, your reactions and what comes “out” is not always something to be proud of.
Then I had another thought, or more a realization. My baby, my better half, significant other, whatever I call him… He is an orange, he is my orange. Yes, he has made mistakes, had bad judgment in the past, but not one person that knows him can honestly say he is not a good man with integrity. He has been dealt so many harsh blows, was judged for his decisions. But never once has that made him react in any way that he could not be proud of. He doesn’t speak ill of people and doesn’t judge. He is trustworthy and loving. He has a good heart and truly wishes the best for everyone.
My girls are blessed to have him in their lives and his kids are so proud to call him dad. He is definitely our orange, because when squeezed we are always guaranteed orange juice.
Love you so much!!
