Let Them Learn

As hard as it is to watch a loved one in struggle sometimes we have to leave them be and let them learn. It’s natural to want to save someone from suffering. We can intervene and interfere, we can advise and direct, we can coach and we can coax. Sometimes it doesn’t matter what we do or what we say, people will do what they want to do even when they know it is harmful to themselves or others. Sometimes we can’t save people from themselves, we can only support from a distance and let them learn their lessons. It’s hard to watch, it’s hard to hear. We may understand because we have been there, we have gone through it and seen the other side. We have perspective. For others to gain that perspective and to have that growth, we sometimes have to let them learn.
