We really have to learn that not everyone is going to move the same we do. How I respond or react may be different from you, but that’s the beauty of being different.
How would the world look, if we all responded and acted the same?
Sometimes we are too emotionally invested in the actions of our friends and loved one. Sometimes rightfully so. But we have to know when to step back and allow them to take time to get where we are. I know its easier said then done. But we can love them from afar and be there when they need us the most. Most importantly not abandoning them.
My therapist said something to me the other day about knowing to set boundaries. She said you set them and then don’t follow through. I’m a work in progress.
A friend asked me about staying with me for a little while. Normally, I would say yes but this time I politely said no. I just got some peace and while she may not being disruption but I know the journey I am on and I don’t want any reason to stop my progress.
I felt bad and maybe she was upset. But maybe she will understand. Idk….
