Great food for thought Miss Carol. So much wisdom to be gleaned from this.
I lead a group of 85 women at my church, and every week someone expresses negative emotions to me about something. I try to be compassionate, and I try to own my own crap. However, I can’t take their negative comments personally or I’d have one nervous breakdown after another. Thanks for the reminder. Well expressed!
Sounds like you have it handled.
A wonderful lesson on what is really important in life. I suppose it is the adult version for “Let it Go”.
It’s easy to tell yourself to let it go. It works in theory; in reality it’s difficult because we all want to feel as though we have some control. As a woman in her 70’s, you’d think by now I’d be very good at letting things go–and sometimes I am. When I’m not, I have a new technique that helps. If I cannot let it go, I set it down. It may sound silly, but it works.
I’ll have to try that!
I’m getting much better about NOT owning other people’s stuff. I have more than enough of my own. Off to read…
