I had an exchange with_a client_this morning and offered her a strategy I want to share with you as well.
When we live with as many challenges as we do, from either juggling the demands of our various labels (e.g. ADHD) or those of our child. It’s easy to slide into the role of fixer. Not only for your life but for those around you as well.
Worst case scenario is you in the role of martyr, always sacrificing your needs for those of others.
The harsh reality is that you can’t help everyone, nor should you. Too much help can disempower someone who could really use a kick in the ass.
My point is this. Compassion is healthy and needed more than ever in today’s world. Compassion doesn’t always mean intervention. It can also be found in trusting that good can prevail in even the most difficult situations.
But it needs you to get out of the way in order to do its work. In those moments I recommend this intention. You can release the problem to the universe and say, “I release this with the belief that it will work out for the best.”
Try this today as often as possible. Feel the weight lifted off your shoulders. How does it feel?
