Words of Wisdom | A Cricket’s Song

1 min readMay 15, 2024

Crickets chirp or sing for courtship or aggression. Doesn’t that sound distinctly familiar? Somewhat like abusers. They court you one minute and the next they are aggressive.

Leaving abusers causes confusion in our minds. It shouldn’t but it often does. We believe they are singing only one song — a song of love or courtship. But that simple isn’t true.

The acts of aggression by abusers they often softened by their songs of courtship.

I remember as a child after my father’s rape or even before he raped me, he sang a song of courtship. Telling me things I needed to hear — that he loved me, needed me, and I was his favorite. He chirped courtship and aggression sometimes in the same song.

My prayer for you today is that you would be wiser than a cricket. Recognize what love really is and what love really is not.
