“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.”
Stephen Covey

2 Corinthians 9:6 - The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

What I love about this verse is that it encourages us to be proactive. It might be that you are the person who has been excluded. Decide to not give up on relationships. Choose to keep sowing and working hard at making it work. Sowing is not easy. The soil needs to be prepared. Rocks and weeds and all unwanted materials need to be removed from the soil. Then the ground needs to be fertilised etc. It’s very hard work. Connecting with people can also be very hard work.
