Are you ever been tempted to figuratively, drive someone’s boat for them?
What if you experience a ‘driver’ who pulls away and takes you to places unknown?
Sometimes our children, or even our loved ones, take us in directions we had no intention, or desire, of going.
- Is there anything that can change the direction of the the driver?
- Are we able to affect their choice?
- Can we help without taking their agency?
- How can we help ourselves?
- Lack of responsibility, or not wanting to take it on
- Not wanting to face fears
- Not wanting to be alone
- Not wanting to be accountable for their own decisions -it will always be someone else’s fault as they continue down this path
- Laziness for one reason or another
Your great asset, the way to help your straying, or rebellious loved one, is to take courage in your value as a human being.
YOU also are a greatest crowning achievement of God!
- The most important thing you can do, is to work on your relationship with your Heavenly Father.
- Be better every day, try, realize we all fail, get up and keep going.
- Be a guide and model as you have to cross these violent storms and dark times.
