Day 114 ~ Letting Them Fall (Once In A While)

As a parent, when you see your little boy or little girl fall your first instinct is to run to save them.  As you watch your baby grow, although your first instinct is to keep them from harm's way, you sometimes just have to sit back and restrain yourself, while telling them how brave they are to survive their fall and the pain that followed.

There may have been a time or two in your life that you may have witnessed a friend or possibly a stranger fall... 

Isn't it strange that the more removed a person is from your life, the easier it is to laugh at their mishap... and the louder your laugh gets!  ;)  Then the older a person might be, you find yourself thinking, "oh they're not that old, they'll be okay."  or  "poor thing, look they are so old... hurry get over there and help!"

Then there's a time where you find yourself witnessing the demise of a love one's life... 

You've tried helping, but no matter what you say or do...

Your love one is just barreling down into a fast forward spin...  as if they were a character in "Alice In Wonderland."  

Their behavior isn't at all to what you are used to.  They have compromised who they are.  Making decisions that are so out of character, going against what once was their core "being."

If your love one was drinking or on drugs, you would at least have that to blame...

How do you blame something that is suppose to be so tender, so trusting, so embracing, so happy... ???

How do you stand up against what they call "love"?  

How do you explain to them that it's not?

How do you tell them that it's bad for them and destroying who they are and what they stand for?

Sometimes, for as difficult as it may be, you have to sit back, watch them fall and be there to catch them.

Sometimes the cards we are dealt are not always fair. However you must keep smiling & moving on.     ~  Tom Jackson

You are responsible for your life. You can't keep blaming somebody else for your dysfunction. Life is really about moving on.   ~  Oprah Winfrey

Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.      ~  Lucille Ball
Blessings to all!!
