What you feel is best for you may not be best for those around you. If you find yourself constantly forcing your opinions, thoughts and actions on others because ‘you know what’s best’, it may be time to rethink your stance.
You are each given free will and that is something that can never be taken away. Allow the people who surround you the same respect you ask for, let them make their own mistakes, create their own experiences and collect their own memories. Even though it may be challenging to sit by and watch, it will show a much greater amount of love and caring than anything else. Guide……. support……. love unconditionally. Controlling is for those who feel no control in their own lives. Tend to your own garden and let others do the same. ~ Creator
