When you begin seeing it as abuse, you’ll stop doing it…
FORCE. Stop trying to force yourself, or anyone else, into doing something you, he, or she are not ready to do.
Kim McMillan reminds us, “When I loved myself enough I began seeing the abuse in trying to force something or someone who isn’t ready — including me.”
Abusive? Aggressive? Assertive? Attentive?
There’s no need to force it.
It’s all in good time.
If it’s out of time, it’s abuse.
If it’s a hard time, it’s aggressive.
If it’s ahead of time, it’s assertive.
If it’s on time, it’s attentive.
If it’s IN TIME, it’s alive.
Force can be creatively life-giving and awe-inspiring.
Let’s redefine FORCE…
Start. Doing. When you’re ready.
Ready. Set. GROW.
