When I was little…
When I was little, I picked up a
flower and put it in a vase.
After a few days, it died.
I asked my mom why, and she
said: “You can’t force a flower
to thrive somewhere it doesn’t
And now I realize that
people are like that, too.
where they are well loved and cared for,
just like plants and animals.
If you mistreat a plant like picking a beautiful flower, you lesson it’s life cycle greatly.
Everyone picks flowers, and while the base plant still flourishes,
the flower itself begins to die at that very moment.
Of coarse you can immediately put the flower in water,
and add supplemental plant food to help it sustain life,
but picking it from the mother plant lessens it ‘s life span no matter what you do.
And so is the life of a person or animal.
If you take them away from the love and support they need
to survive and thrive, you are taking away their life support.
This happens often when a couple gets married early in life
and is taken away from the family to go far away and build their own life.
They find themselves away from the help and support they need
and often end up giving up and separating because life is just too hard.
Not that they don’t love each other, but as you know, reality is a lot different
than the illusion of “I will love you forever, for better or for worse”
No wonder people are changing their vows more towards “when the money is gone – so am I…”
Or “let’s just see how this goes…” “I really need a housekeeper…”
Or no vows at all because there is NO commitment at all.
Very few couples survive the hardships of life and actually have each other’s backs as they promise.
Saying the words are so different than doing the action needed to keep a love alive
through the tough stages of life.
You can’t force anything to thrive somewhere it doesn’t belong.
And no one can survive and flourish without ongoing LOVE.
They just shrivel up and die
like the clipped off flower.
So give yourself and your loved ones the best possible life
by being honest with them and finding the ways to actually
love and support yourself
before trying to take on someone else.
Make sure you both belong together
and have enough in common to forge through the tough times
and actually survive and thrive together as a team.
