Aren’t you just a little worn out from believing you have to control everything?
Doesn’t it feel better knowing that you don’t have to save the world?
And don’t you realize that you don’t have to do all that for people to love you?
Our answer was a full body yes. And it was magnificent.
Because once we’re released from the painful chore of being responsible for the world and everyone in it, we’re finally free to focus on our own needs. Once we surrender our vain attempts to control the uncontrollable, we can relax into the peace of a boundaried life.
As the twelve steppers like to say:
We didn’t cause it, we can’t control it and we can’t cure it. No more fixing, no more saving,
No more advising and no more correcting. People, places and things will be perfectly okay without our control and direction.
And it’s not like we’re lonely and alienated and disengaged. Quite the opposite. Our connection to the world is still there, but our need to fix everything so the world doesn’t fall apart, isn’t.
Sure sounds better than being the medieval knight who saves the day with his sword.
What a horrible job we’ve given ourselves.
LET ME ASK YA THIS...
Are you concentrating on the things you need to do, or looking around for people who require your help?
