I Didn't Tell You So

More often then not, I would hear the echoing sound of a barrage of words thatsaid "I Told You So.."  Whether they came from a nagging foe or supporting friend after making a choice to do things differently (my way) and falling flat on my face. Those words hurt.  No matter what my intentions were, I have to face the fact that my bad choices seem to always come back and haunt me.

Recently, a very dear friend of mine asked for my advice.  This was the perfect opportunity to share some of my wisdom and past experiences on life.  The fact that this friend trusted me to share my thoughts made me feel honored.

After breaking things down as I saw them, my friend chose to do things differently. WHAT???  Leaving me almost speechless (not easy to do...)

Well, wisdom and insight proved correct and I was right.  Now, it was my turn to tell my friend that, I told you so and unleash what was due...  But I made a different choice.  I stood by my friend and encouraged them to Make their next choice their best choice...

Next time you hear those words "I Told You So"  You might choose not to repeat them...
