Don’t tell me how to live

We all want the people closest to us to understand and accept our views, and we all want to be of some kind of help – it makes us feel good. 

For better or for worse we do our best to convince one other of our own lived truths, and what has been helpful and worked in our own situation.

It often backfires though. 

What’s right for me is seldom right for you, and in the heat of the moment, that’s very easy to forget.

We cannot teach anybody how to live life, it has to be lived and experienced in order to understand how to relate to it. 

However, though we have to walk the miles ourselves, we still have the possibility to walk together. A shared journey is a better journey.

Let love shine through you!

Be generous, be gentle, be kind. Always!
