Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.” ― Roy T. Bennett” I AGREE WITH YOUR CHOICES, BUT SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO CRUCIFY YOURSELF FOR SOMEONE YOU LOVE. I HAVE been MARRIED FOR 31 YEARS TO a good looking guy who is bipolar, narcissistic, OCD, antisocial, controlling, paranoid and a lot of other stuff thrown in. He is on medication to control his rages and depression, is 69 years’ old and impossible. I never did understand what was going on, but have been making excuses for his abusive behaviour for years. At last I have been going with him to a psychologist who is trying to help us to get him to talk. I am 77 years’ old and my health is failing, but I still see myself as the nurturer and this is getting too much for me. I have no choice but to bear with him in his struggle and leaving would devastate him, as he has no-one who cares. What choices do I have, but to finish the journey and to give abundantly, as God expects us to do; there’s too much of the me, myself and I in this world and the ego flies high; look at our governments. It’s all about the people running the show and not about the people. People with ill members of their family who really have no choice but to care for them until the end? How I admire them. I send my love to those with no choices.. God Bless them all… Reply I understand what you are saying. Life and relationships sometimes have choices that one simply cannot solve without sacrificing another part of yourself which you may deem more valuable. What I can share is that if one knows that one is choosing something which others may not have chosen, just make sure that you give yourself as much care as you do others and find the peace in your soul so that you are the master of the choice which is empowering more than not. Make sure that you are supported enough if you are choosing to support another. Blessings to you. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
