The Choice Is Yours
What’s the point in having choices if it’s not what you want to do?
It can be difficult to watch a loved one make a choice that you believe will lead to devastation or destruction. As a person that is looking out for your loved one best interest, it is okay to try and give them corrective advice that will help them with their life choices, but if your corrective, helpful advice is unwanted, unappreciated, or adhered to, you should not feel responsible for the choice that the individual makes.
Since we have all been given free-will, we should be allowed to make the choices that allows us to feel comfortable and those that we can live with.
Because in most of these situations, once a person has made up their mind about what they want to do, your words of correction will fall on deaf ears. You will be wasting your time trying to get them to change their mind about the choice that they have decided on.
This comment may sound harsh but, one way that you can eliminate all frustration within yourself, by the choice that was made is to leave them alone and allow them to live with their choice or choices.
You should still love them, see value in them, not look down on them or be judgmental about the choice that they have decided to make. You Should not make them feel nervous or uncomfortable about the choice that they want or have made. If there are any consequences to their choices, resist the urge to say, “I told you so.” I Will, Will You?
