The past couple of weeks I have dealt with unhealthy family dynamics. The lack of boundaries and communication can have a negative affect on relationships.
These incidents were not with me personally. In my family I realized I am moral support to many. At times it can be very overwhelming.
Living uncomplicated is an intentional thing. It is thoughtful, and forgiving, and requires work. I have decided I will live without the drama.
If I find myself in the middle I will choose to remove myself. I will continue to be listening ear to my family but will speak up when the conversation goes into circles, or when I feel that an individual isn’t interested in having a conversation, but merely wants to talk without wanting to change. I’ll be mindful to live without feeding into the drama. And, I will also choose to surround myself with individuals who aren’t weighed down by complaints, anger, and competition.
Living lightly is more than just possessions, it is living light in our souls, too.
