Have you ever pulled a poster or construction paper off of the wall that was held up there by some adhesive tape in an attempt to place it on another wall by using the same tape that was on that item preciously?
Most often you will have some success getting it up to stay up at the new location with no problem but sometimes it just won’t stay put for long without eventually falling off of the wall.
Now if you push the issue further by not accepting the fact the there is not much adhesive left on the tape after so many prior uses and attempt to press harder at a third or fourth location you shouldn’t be surprised when the very second that you finished pressing the tape around it on the wall that the paper will fall immediately to the ground forcing you to face the fact that there is just no more “stickability left on the back of the tape for it to be of any use to get it to bond with the wall no matter how hard you try!
There are actually many reasons for this to happen. Aside from the fact that the adhesive had been worn off due to it being placed on so many different walls which took away a little of its “grab” with each different attempt, it could have also been that there was a barrier of debris between the tape and the wall from the unclean surfaces of that wall that blocked any possible adhesion at all.
After a while the tape is ineffective in holding on to anything and needs to be replaced by a new piece of tape in order to continue on to get the job of holding the item up on the wall as originally intended.
But if you really look into it, you wouldn’t have had this problem in the first place if you weren’t so quick to want to put that picture up on the wall without thinking if that was the long term spot that you desired for it to be in the first place!
Wouldn’t you agree that most of the time we will find ourselves in an uncomfortable predicament because we didn’t think over all of our available options through in the first place?
Oh how we men could have held on to the good women that we once had in our lives and avoided the pain that we put ourselves through as well as the pain we caused her if we thought before we did the things to her to make her heart lose its ‘stickability?”
What do I mean by that statement?
Well what I mean is that a woman’s love is like that piece of adhesive tape that holds that picture or paper up on the wall except it is not an item that it holds, it is the love that she has for us that we put through the constant changes that makes her lose her ability and desire to truly love us!
The residue of our foolish games and insensitivity will make her heart lose its stickability!
The cold-natured way we respond to her subtle pleas for attention kill off any means for her to hold on to the hope of one day being loved completely and unconditionally even though we make sure to go through the “routine” of us saying our “I love you’s” in passing!
But do we show her?
I think not.
Like that piece of well worn tape that has lost its adhesive ability, once we realize that she has turned cold toward us and is not responding to our touch no matter how hard we “press”, she is unable to now hold on to that feeling that SHE wanted for so long to have with you but you killed it off with your games!
Many of us want to now accuse HER of seeing someone else but deep down inside we know that it is US who made it easier to find the peace, security and joy in another man’s arms but we can never face that fact and bear responsibility for the sorry state of emotional affairs that we find OURSELVES in!
So I plead with you to understand how delicate a woman’s love is when abused but also to know how strong, mighty and enduring it can be when you don’t play the games that causes the stickability of her love to be banished.
A world without a woman’s love and a touch is a gift from God and without it is indeed a world without joy…….don’t wear it away!
