Stay in Your Lane
Some of our biggest disappointments in life are the result of expectations we have of others that they can’t ever possibly meet. Soledad Francis
Iyanla says it the best, it is actually unloving to both you and the other person to expect them to do the things they have either demonstrated that they cannot do or are unwilling to do by their actions.
We live in hope that if we continue to coerce, prove ourselves, ask nicely, motivate and inspire others that they will somehow come around to doing that particular thing that we have been asking and begging them to do or not do for ages.
When they don't we get really frustrated and annoyed, sometimes bitter!
Do your thing, stay in your lane, climb your ladder and most importantly make a choice that you cannot make people do anything you want them to do if they don't want to do it. Focus on you, because....choices
