I know a few people who are having a hard time accepting what is happening to them right now. I’m really worried, and I want to help them. If only they could accept the reality of the situation they are in, things will start to get better. If only they could stop hoping and wishing that things were different, they’d start to heal.
Sometimes we are the ones who have to make a change. Sometimes we are in bad situations that are presented to us because we are the ones who are supposed to fix them.
But sometimes things just can’t be changed. Sometimes things are just as they are, and there is no getting around them.
Sometimes the only way is to go through the grief and the pain, and to see it for what it is.
But then I realized I’m doing the very same thing. I’m not accepting the reality of the situation. I’m not accepting that their pain and inability to face it is in fact the reality.
It is all a great big circle of codependency.
