“I didn’t know whether my son was an alcoholic or whether he was doing normal experimentation,” a woman said. “I talked to people. I worried about when or whether I should put him in treatment. But the day it became time to do that, I just knew. It became perfectly clear.”
“I’m in a relationship right now, and I’m not sure where it will go,” another woman said. “Sometimes the hardest thing in the world is to not obsess and just let it be what it is.”
Wait and see doesn’t mean we completely let go. It means that for a while, we decide to hang on loose.
Action: Can you remember a time when you let go and patiently waited for clarity to arrive? Instead of trying to force things, can you wait until that feeling of rightness comes around again? Relax. Let the picture come into focus instead of staring at it so hard.
