When love is involved I think we tend to want to nurture and protect our loved ones. That is normal human instinct.
What we fail to realise in the midst's of trying to repair someone's broken life is that we are actually removing the possibility of allowing room for them to take responsibility and accountability for their actions and learn valuable life lessons based on their own life path.
I am not saying we should ignore signs of domestic violence or any form of abuse.
I am speaking directly about people who behave badly, people we love, people who use, abuse, who are in constant conflict with the world and those who manipulate. We all have them in our circle and of course we care about them.
Sometimes we need to step back and allow their choices to take its course. That is tough love.
You can love them, but you don't need to love their behaviour.
