Misery Loves Company

It is sad that some people love to make others miserable. It is even sadder when they do not see that they are miserable. Some people are never happy and want others to be just as unhappy as they are. They constantly complain and never appreciate the good things in life. Drama is their virtue; nothing or no one can change their mindset UNLESS they choose to get help. So, what do you do when you have someone around you that operates in such a fashion? Refuse to be their company.

That's right! You can refuse to commit yourself to their plague of misery by limiting physical contact or conversations so they will not pull you down with them. As Christians, we are to bear one another's burdens. Yet, we are also to watch our associations unless we fall into the same trap. The Bible says: "Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways and entangle yourself in a snare" (Proverbs 22:24-25). Sometimes people enjoy their misery because they love the attention that it often gives them. Therefore, they wallow in self-pity, and those around them tend to be the recipients of their misery, grief, bitterness, and anger. However, you can choose to go down a different path than the one they've chosen.

Live for God, enjoy life, hang around positive people, and make the most of every opportunity that comes your way. See, miserable people only see gray clouds, but behind every cloud, the sun is still present. That's right! The sun doesn't exit the universe just because of a few clouds. Somewhere on this great planet, the sun is still shining. Therefore, seek out the sun and leave misery floating in the clouds.
