Very quickly after I posted the above topic and helping / enabling, a very good friend of mine used the message below by an anonymous person. Some people know that they are enabling and not helping but can’t seem to walk away and let the situations work themselves out to “what the Universal Choices lead them to make”. C B LOW
To Let Go is not to stop caring,
It’s recognizing I can’t do it for someone else.
To Let Go is not to cut myself off,
It’s realizing I can’t control another.
To Let Go is not to enable,
But to allow learning from natural consequences.
To Let Go is not to fight powerlessness,
But to accept that the outcome
is not always in my hands.
To Let Go is not to try to change or blame others,
It’s to make the most of myself.
To Let Go is not to care for, it’s to care about.
To Let Go is not to fix, it’s to be supportive.
To Let Go is not to judge,
It’s to allow another to be a human being.
To Let Go is not to try to arrange outcomes,
But to allow others to affect their own destinies.
To Let Go is not to be protective,
It’s to permit another to face their own reality.
To Let Go is not to regulate anyone,
But to strive to become what I dream I can be.
To Let Go is not to fear less, it’s to love more
If we all could only love more and hate less!!!!!!!!!!!
