Do you sometimes feel pressured by others’ upset? Especially when it is my loved ones and they are being challenged, I find myself wanting to make everything all right.
What a relief to remember that I don’t have to do anything. They are capable of handling their own lives.
When I step back and hold, things turn out better than I expected AND there is the added benefit of avoiding getting caught in their upset. This works best when done with an attitude of loving and I like to start praying for whatever is best for them.
Heavens knows I don’t know what is best for them. I get to sit back and watch it unfold.
