When I was a teenager I remember one particular car journey with my mum. We were on some country lanes minding our own business when a driver appeared behind us obviously in a rush.
I presumed they were being idiots trying to wind us up or scare us.
My mum very calmly pulled over so the car could speed past.
I remember my speech; “Mum what are you doing? We were going the speed limit. They were being stupid. You should have stood your ground.”
I remember my mum’s response, “Maybe they had a call from the hospital and they need to get there quickly. You never know what’s going on for people.”
Mum showed compassion
I presumed they were bad
Mum saw potential goodness
I was ready to fight
Mum got out of the way.
My message to you is simple.
Sometimes you just need to get out of the way.
Is someone in your life doing your head in or causing you grief? Get out of the way
Are they stirring a situation and causing trouble? Get out of the way
It doesn’t matter who is right sometimes you just need to get out of the way.
Life can be really hard and fighting to prove a point is not always worth it. Look after your emotional and mental well being and enjoy YOUR journey.
Love to you all
