Benjamin Franklin said...
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
I find myself trapped on that particular hamster wheel lately, in regard to a couple of relationships I have..one with a friend one with a family member.
In the last 2 days I have had 2 light bulb moments in regard to them. Yesterday was the "aha" with my friend. I realized that our relationship is what it is because of the direction and circumstances of our lives. It's not going to change and I have decided FINALLY to let it go.
Today's "aha" is all about the relationship with a particular family member. We are where we are because she has made a choice about how she wants to live her life..and I need to let my expectations and assumptions go. I have decided to FINALLY let go.
I find myself at peace about the friendship and am working toward being at peace with my family member..that is the best I can do...
