HEALING BROKEN HEARTS AND WOUNDED SOULS

Posts tagged ‘pressure’

It takes courage and much more…

When you’ve been abused, mistreated, used and dumped

It takes courage, the willingness to forgive

And the desire to live again

To give out your heart another time.

That’s why we must never exert pressure on people

To open up their hearts to us.

We deserve openness and genuineness in every relationship

But we must give people the time to change,

To heal and to willingly open up again.

Trying to force it out of them can be counter  productive

NO matter how much you love them and want to be with them

Just be gentle enough to let them loosen up naturally and at a  pace

That is comfortable for them.

They may really be in love,

But still needing time to get on the rails

Do not be impatient when they seem reticent

Let the rose unfold naturally.

Love and Blessing, Gretiana

 

Unable to say “NO”? check your motives

You’re afraid of hurting people; you’re a people-pleaser.

  • You want to be loved and accepted.
  • The false doctrine that says love never says “No”.
  • You crave to be applauded and appreciated.
  • You are simply complying to and perpetuating a tradition.
  • You’re under peer pressure.
  • You lack the courage to stand alone and be different.

The inability to say “No” could have negative consequences that far out-weigh the above motives for saying “Yes”.

No matter how good you are you will never be able to please everybody, so stop trying.

Let wisdom guide you to say a polite “NO” and a courageous “Yes” as the need arises.

The hardest thing I ever did in my life was try to please everybody; and I failed.

 

Do you often have difficulties in saying “No”? What are your reasons?
