We spend so much of our lives trying to do the right thing, to fit in, to please those around us.
In order to live in harmony with one another we need to listen to each others needs and desires, to respect the opinions of others and to endevour to walk alongside the lives of our fellow human beings in a way that allows communication, peaceful interaction and joyful living. However it is important that we remember to respect ourselves too, to listen to our needs and desires and to facilitate a life that will also bring us peaceful interaction and joyful living.
Sometimes in listening to our inner desires we find ourselves treading less than lightly on the lives of others!
Life is about finding the balance between caring for those around us and caring for ourselves. We don't always get it right, but it is the journey that matters, the destination is not always where we need to be.
