It’s a tough lesson to learn. We continue to learn it throughout our lives, in different ways, but I believe the main lesson is: to learn to Let Go.
We must learn that our only business is that of our ourselves.
It’s not easy when we love someone and we just know that if only they stopped doing this or if only they began doing that, their lives would be better off. I often have to be reminded that what anyone else does, no matter how close I am to them, is none of my business. All I can do is lead them toward the water, the rest is up to them.
And further, have you also refrained from showing someone the water because you assumed that they would never change, they’re a lost cause, they’re too damaged, or doomed? Well, as shitty as it is to admit, I have, and I have come to realize in the past few years how ridiculous that is. Assuming is one of my pet-peeves (when you assume you make an Ass-out of- U-and-Me) yet, even so, I fall into the trap every so often.
Who are we to say they won’t drink? Just do your part and share the wealth of knowledge and see if they decide to drink the water or not. You never know they just might be thirsty enough to do it! #selfimprovement #selfcare #selflove #helpothers #beofservice #lovelife #workhard #doyourpart #changetheworld #bethechange
