Sometimes in relationships, we find we are going in opposite directions from our friends or loved ones. Try not to get your feathers ruffled, waddle along your own path and detach with love.
It is hard when relationships aren’t going the way we want. Sometimes we realize it is not all it “quacked” up to be. We invest so much of our time and love in people and then wonder what happened when we seem to be moving in a different direction from our loved ones. Try not to take it personally. Sometimes people come into our lives for a season because we have something to learn from each other. When the lesson is learned, the energy to hold the relationship together may not be there. Or maybe, we are supposed to learn that we aren’t supposed to extend ourselves where it isn’t appreciated. Almost always, forcing it will likely cause us to be more frustrated and anxious.
If you find yourself in this situation, always remember that if something is meant to be, it will come back around naturally. Don’t force it. Try to focus on the many other wonderful things and people in your life. There is always someone who will appreciate your positive approach and beautiful spirit. And remind yourself, “you got this!” © August 31, 2014, Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC
