The dark night of the soul is a period of time where you are caught between your old self and your spiritual self. As you begin to leave behind old ways of thinking you start to feel less and less a part of your old life.
How much of your precious life time are you spending with people that there is a should attached to? They call and you can feel yourself recoiling at the thought of getting together. Neither of you enjoys it, but guess what, you really “should” do it any way.
I recently had an insight shared with me that I found very shocking. If we were to make a list of people in our lives we would find that there are 3 or 4 who we are in relationship with who really don’t want the best for us. They can even be people we consider close, a parent, a sister, a life long friend, who we are forced to interact with on a regular basis.
I find it sadly amusing when a sibling comments to his or her parents that they did not not know or thought they did not know something.... perhaps we really don't know a great deal about our parents and often find out after they are gone.
Any parent knows that there is a fine line between doing the best for your adult child and imposing our own will upon them. Have you ever felt that you could see a wreck coming and wanted to desperately deflect it with some unsolicited advice?
