Meddling

It may be hard to understand why family may sometimes find it necessary to meddle or interfere in each other’s lives?  Where family care, they may begin to overstep the mark and boundaries and that is when meddling can happen.

Those who meddle may have a strong emotional reaction to want to help someone with their life, or their circumstances, but that should be the time to take a step back.

It’s fine if the other person is asking for advice, but not fine if that person doesn’t want advice, but it’s given anyway. It is always important to stand back and take another person’s lead.

  1. Yeah, sometimes you feel like you’re trying to help, but you’re actually meddling.

    I think we all have experienced it before; all we can do is step back and learn from our mistakes.

  2. I think some people meddle without realising they are and others enjoy it.

    Either way it’s harmful at its least and destructive at its worst. I know it is easier said than done, but the recipient should be able to confront the perpetrator, to try to reach a position they are happy with.

    1. You are right, but in reality they never do. It’s a character trait they use to get through life.

      As with all of my beliefs, I believe this one can be changed too. We just have to want to change. That has to be the starting point.
