A Cheetah can’t change its spots to be something you want it to be. You cannot learn lessons for others, all you can do is support who they are now. Manipulation of any kind will only push them away and you’ll lose them forever. Be cautious of the judgements you make today. The consequences could be disastrous.
Everyone is searching for something. Everyone has baggage that needs to be healed. You’re not the only one suffering right now, so don’t expect others to live up to your expectations. You’re only setting them up to fail and creating disappointment around yourself.
Be supportive by showing compassion and try talking about the mistakes from your own life. Use yourself as an example, but stay away from the mistakes you think you see in others. What you might see as an error in judgement, could be that persons willingness to take a brave chance to achieve their dream. It may not be your dream, but then again, it’s not your life either. Stop trying to live it for them.
Be willing to have a serious look at the situation you’re in and be honest with yourself. Look at your actions, not at the actions of others. Decide if your choices are based on the baggage you’ve been caring around. Are you really being fair? Refrain from using the words “You made me” and don’t start any sentence with “You”. By doing so you are placing blame on someone else for your choices to feel a certain way or how you have chosen to react to the situation. Instead try saying “I felt like” or “I thought” and you’ll take ownership of your emotions and decisions. Even “when you did this, I thought that” is better than “you made me”.
We all have hopes and dreams for the ones we love, especially our own children. But when you’re living your life with someone else, your hopes and dreams aren’t the only dreams in the equation. And if you’re a parent, try to remember when you were young? Remember the dreams you had? Maybe you didn’t go for them because no one was there supporting your vision. Don’t make the same mistakes your parents made, or maybe even the mistakes your grandparents made with them. Break the cycle today and take a step back. You can’t force anyone to live the way you want them to. Because in the end, they’ll cut you out of their life and you may not be a part of it at all.
It’s not anger that will win the day. But understanding and love. It’s not fear that will push the situation down the path you desire, but courage to let go and let others live their own lives. Take a deep breath and remember that what you put out, you will get back. Accept others for who and what they are, and you will be accepted. Be supportive of those close to you, and they will support you. If someone in your life is walking away; let them go. They aren’t what you had hoped they’d be and you deserve better. And better is out there, ready and waiting for you to take notice. It’s not going to be an easy day for some. But you will get through it and if you choose compassion over anger, you’ll get through it for the better.
