It doesn’t matter how much we talk from the heart, sometimes the people we’re trying to talk to, don’t want to hear what we need to say. It’s only in those moments that we may begin to realise that we’re left with no alternative but to walk away.
Wouldn’t life be great if we had control over other people’s thoughts? Not so that we can control their every move, or even their thinking, just so they can see what we see, understand what we understand and make those changes so that we can move forward together.
Usually, it’s not that the other person disagrees with what we say. When we speak from the heart, nine times out of ten the other person may not always know how to deal with that so won’t know what to say. I’ve had that but I’ve also had experience, where I’ve tried to reach out and people don’t want to hear, although I know that on some level what I was saying did resonate with them.
The signs are often there; it’s knowing what to look out for. When someone doesn’t want to hear or change, they will never accept what we say and therefore may choose to walk away and there’s nothing we can do about it. People don’t always want to try, because to try means having to face the truth. They would rather walk away and do nothing, than accept that what we’re saying is the truth.
But we must always speak our own truth, regardless of the outcome. Whether our truth concurs with someone else’s truth is immaterial. We must always sew a seed and speak our truth, regardless of the circumstances or consequences. We shouldn’t have to conform, just because we don’t want to rock the boat. I had to change.
As a child, I was continually keeping the peace, I never chose to rock the boat with certain family members, but it never made my life any better. People still took advantage. Now I choose to just live my life.
