How do we go about shielding loved ones from hurt? When I hear someone I care about being upset or hurt about something I have no control on. I ache. I ache for the person feeling bad. I feel frustrated and helpless. Sometimes my frustration appears harsh. In the process of trying to make things better, I sometimes make them worse.
When in pain I write. Like now. It is up to us to take charge of our destiny. To chart the course of our life. We control how we feel. It is up to us to decide to be happy. To ignore things that cause us pain or to understand, forgive and forget. Easier said than done I know.
How would you deal with a situation like this? Other than listening and feeling frustrated of course.
