Next time you find yourself feeling frustrated, disappointed or feeling resentful, it’s likely someone or something fell short of your expectations.
You have a few options…
- Try shaming, guilting or threatening them into conforming
- Judge them, blame them and exclude them from your life
- Surrender your need for control, detach from the pain and let reality be
There of course are all sorts of options in between and if your equation lacks love, it’s not serving either of you.
