From birth, our lives are a question of negotiation. Sometimes we get what we want, sometimes we don’t. How we handle the balance of this is critical to our happiness.
Sometimes a helpless, unloved role has become a second skin, so that we cannot imagine there is another way to live. But there is. We are all able to initiate and negotiate help for ourselves, and love for ourselves.
There are several types of growing relationship, each with its own dynamic. Do you have a good balance?
Our lives seem tangled, and they are. Bodily, we are interconnected, interdependent. But our minds need not be caught up anxiously in the fray.
