STOP Assuming the Worst

For the first time in a long time my daughter is getting her life together without the help drama-filled meddling of outside influences.

Just because she writes something public on her facebook page that has a negative connotation doesn’t mean something bad has happened to her.

Leave her alone. Stay out of it.

For once she is doing well and doesn’t need anyone to rescue her or bail her out. She doesn’t have any responsibilities right now and she is a grown young lady who has a life to live.

She has joined the military and is working out with the Marines two days a week on a delayed entry program. She has two jobs. She is living in a house with two roommates and the rent is dirt cheap. For once she is doing very WELL for herself.

It’s always the same people over and over again who automatically assume the worst. It’s NOT your job to help rescue everyone when YOU yourself are drowning in the ocean you never learned how to swim in.

For the first time in a long time WE are working on our relationship and we don’t need help drama-filled meddling from outside influences.

If you want to be “helpful” let go and let God do what He needs to do. Did you ever stop and think that maybe you need to get out of God’s way? He has a job to do and you are not trusting that He knows what He is doing.

Maybe you can be a positive place in her life by offering her encouragement instead of money or things. Maybe you can stop assuming the worst and learn how to be positive instead of pessimistic about everything.

It’s NOT your responsibility to help intervene. Your track record should tell you that every single time you have helped intervened and inserted yourself it has backfired.

It’s NOT your responsibility.

It’s almost as if you CRAVE the trouble that doesn’t exist.

STOP it.
