My life woke me up last night. Well certain aspects did anyway, but luckily it wasn’t too early. As I continue to work on my health, I continue to work on the other things that have the potential to affect my health.
Although we often live with the consequences of other people’s behaviour, I now begin to wonder and continue to ask myself, whether it’s more important for us to sew a seed, or find a place on the things we have yet to resolve through other people’s actions.
I have been very open about my struggles with the ignorance and negativity and the not knowing I had Cerebral Palsy, needing others who should have been taking responsibility for me, to take responsibility. I need to feel differently about it.
Although I believe we should always sew a seed, I also think there’s a time when that won’t work and where what we’re trying to do becomes counter-productive. It all very much depends on the person we’re trying to sew a seed with.
If we have someone who is open to our concerns and feelings, sewing a seed will work and although it’s right to see a seed, trying to sew a seed with someone who doesn’t care, isn’t interested or doesn’t agree with us, will in a way make our lives more miserable, the more we keep trying.
Even if someone doesn’t accept they’re accountable on this or the other side of life, doesn’t mean they’re not and even if they claim not to understand, they’re still accountable for their actions. It’s important for us to see our seed.
We obviously can’t convince someone who doesn’t want to be convinced. But on our part, we know what we know. The facts will speak for themselves. What’s done can never be erased, in the same way our opinions on what others have done can never be erased.
The other person will always know the truth whether they admit the truth to us or not and that should be enough. At the end of the day letting go and keeping our sanity has to be more important than us trying or needing to convince the other person.
It’s not our deed to hold on, but it’s still right to sew a seed.
