Bittersweet


This is a word that describes my sense of things tonight. This word is not an emotion, just an adjective, I think. At this moment I am gripped by memories of the bittersweet times in my life. Times when situations hurt, yet were good at the same time. Moments where I didn't know whether to clench my fists in agony or clap for joy. This sense isn't unpleasant, just...well, experiencing bittersweetness is bittersweet too.

I SO understand.

Or when you let your emotions and reactions be based on OTHER people instead of... well, instead of the truth of Christ or even yourself!
