Forcing something never really works.

We’ve all been there. We desire something from someone else or from life and it isn’t happening. Or we know we should do something but aren’t inspired or ready to do it. We want something either someone else or we aren’t willing or able to give.

We may try to push to make things occur, which never delivers the hoped-for results. Instead, we’ll receive or deliver an uninspired effort. And we also disrespect boundaries, either our own or others’. Likely we’ll end up resenting the entire experience. Others involved may feel the same way too.

Today’s message advises me that a forced result can’t be satisfying. Allowing things to work out on their own or trying an avenue that isn’t blocked is healthier for me and others.

Please reflect and share. What’s your experience of forced results?
