In the last three days, I've read blogs about "letting go", and had some conversations about same . . . :)
Clearly, this is the theme of the day . . . :)
Not that long ago, the son of friends died from leukemia . . . A traumatic event . . . That is the nightmare of any parent . . . It simply puts everything into perspective . . .
I thought, how would I deal with that? And truly, I have no idea . . . Until we wear those shoes, we don't know . . .
But it could be a divorce, the loss of someone we thought of as a friend, a job opportunity, or anything at all . . .
We ALL experience shit . . . Life will never be smooth sailing all the time . . . We have moments of calmness, but the choppy waters return . . .
But this I know . . . How do we let go? We bring in our friends . . . We involve those who would empathize . . .
They take on our pain . . . They absorb the feelings of loss, of guilt, of "I'm in extreme emotional pain . . ."
We never want to inconvenience friends . . . But, we would easily and happily be inconvenienced to help a loved one, a dear friend, another human being about whom we care deeply . . .
So, ask them to do what you'd do for them . . . They'll be more than willing . . . They love you, and will give you whatever you need . . .
Life is beautiful baby!
Peace and love . . .
Until next time . . . Ciao!!
