Everything changes. You turn around and something has moved, someone’s charging higher prices, or neighbors you really like move to another neighborhood. Of course it happens in personal relationships too. This person’s in love (when he always thought it had escaped him); another person’s alone when always thought he’d love and be loved forever.
Yet, some things remain dismally the same: your weight might be your constant battle. Your in-laws might still be too demanding. Your son, after all these years, continues to hate homework. Try as you might, you just can’t seem to be as affectionate and “open” and intimate as your partner wants you to be.
Take heart: you’re fully human! Pick your battles, embrace approximation (getting your way only sometimes, settling for a little less than perfect, realizing that life is a process and some things take a long time), and relax. Take action, even a little action, over the things that seem fixed or immovable, and embrace the changes over which you have no control.
Open your hands, don’t grasp, clutch, grab, or try to manipulate the future, your children, or anyone in your sphere of influence. Then, when change is foisted upon you, and you remain fully aware of how powerless you are to change your more unpleasant realities, you will, at least, have grown in grace.
