As children, we live our lives without questioning our parents, siblings or our lives, their roles in our lives, however bad those roles turn out to be.
We just assume that what they say is for our greater good. It’s only ever at that point when we begin to struggle, that we seriously begin to question and see a whole new understanding of what greater good actually means.
Some of us may choose to do something about it by going back in to right a wrong, others may paint over the cracks as if nothing has happened, or others may choose to walk on eggshells to keep their relationships intact, so as not to rock the apple cart. Not everyone will see other people’s motives.
Simply choosing not to upset the applecart; either because we’re not great with change, or we’re not that great with confrontation and to confront would cause us more pain and stress; isn’t a reason not to confront. There is also another thought that perhaps the person we would like to confront, won’t accept what we tell them anyway.
We’re good at the familiar feeling, however uncomfortable. But we’ll always be in a bad place for it. We must see and choose to do something about it.
