Many of us have in our nature we want to help family members, friends, and co-workers.
What is difficult is when the advice we have to give is not received openly.
What do you do?
You can continue to try and help.
You can share your experience if the situation is the same or similar.
Listen and provide support based on what they asked of you.
With all this said, sometimes our best intention; can be met with resistance. This resistance can raise our concerns to the next level, especially when family/friends are involved.
When this occurs, it can cause stress as we want the best for those we love.
Here is what I have learned over the years. I had to let go and pray.
The times they were not open to the advice I provided as they felt their way was best.
I can tell you this is not always easy to do.
But I know I have to protect my peace and not stress myself because I am no good to anyone.
Worrying about the situation serves no purpose.
Let it go and pray for guidance. Mediate so you can accept peace.
I also pray they find their way and if they fall, I will be there to pick them up.
Love sometimes means to say less.
