Random Musing: Saying No to those You Love

Standard

ALT_5.31.13

We ALL have the right to walk any path we choose. Someone not supporting you on a given path or in a given decision is also their right. Even if I love you it does not mean that I will always agree with you.

People are quick to question your heart & loyalty simply because you are not fully on board with all of their choices or if you don’t support them in a manner that they feel you should. I never judge the choices anyone chooses to make but if your choice is going to filter into my life or will in any way impact me then I am always going to be honest about my thoughts on said matter. I stopped biting my tongue a long time ago and have learned to honor my truth (even if that means that someone may be upset with me).

If I notice someone I care about repeating a pattern that I know has caused them pain in the past, then yes I may speak on it. Not because I know everything or because I think I am better than they are but because I would hope that someone cared about me enough to bring to my attention any patterns or choices that I may need to reflect on a little more deeply before I took an action.

Being a sister or friend is not always about going along and supporting every move someone makes…sometimes being a friend and caring is about being honest, asking the hard questions, speaking your truth, & sometimes saying no or I don’t agree. Love comes in many different forms and sometimes out of love (for ourselves, for our own peace, & for others) we have to say what doesn’t want to be heard.

Do in your life whatever it is that you choose but respect that others also have the right to do the same. Freedom & Understanding is a 2 way street. You must give it to receive it ~shared from a place of Love ~ Twin Spirit
