Tea time is usually a term of a social gathering of individuals with tea and dainty eats as the center of attraction. It represents itself as classy, clean, well mannered individuals with like ideas about life through personal reflections.
WELL this 20th century society has completely changed this into what is now called “THE TEA”! This social gathering of individuals consists of any drink of choice with GOSSIP as the center of attraction! THE TEA represents itself as rude, demeaning, judgmental individuals with like perceptions about others lives through personal reflection.
I write this post about THE TEA because it is important to understand the value of relationships. We can damage healthy relationships with our family or friends that are actually meant to build us and help us to grow in our purpose in life BUT because we drank “THE TEA” we became victim to others opinions and perceptions without getting the truth for ourselves. I personally identify myself as an introvert who knows I still need people in my life who can correct me, teach me, encourage me, support me, look past my flaws, and love me all at the same time!
Don’t get me wrong some relationships are meant for SEASONS ONLY, then there are also relationships that are meant for a lifetime. Do not go through life bitter or unforgiving. Make a choice and decide if this relationship adds to or takes away from you and your purpose in life. If you are a person who is an extrovert and always giving of yourself you must ask yourself the same question!
ALL RELATIONSHIPS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL!
FULL-TIME REAL RELATIONSHIPS
- HAVE TEA TIME
- ADDS TO EACH OTHER
- CONSIDERS OTHERS
- LAUGHS WITH YOU
- CORRECTS TO BUILD YOU
SEASONAL FAKE RELATIONSHIPS
- SPILLS THE TEA
- DRAINS EACH OTHER
- SELF INDULGE
- LAUGHS AT YOU
- CONDEMNS AND MAKE YOU FEEL GUILTY
I encourage you to take inventory of your relationships and make an effort to have “TEA TIME” with those who you enjoy and let go of those relationships that spill “THE TEA” because in reality it is too much to have to clean up anyway!!!!!!!!!
