There are many upsetting things in the world around us. Upsetting things often trigger wounded places in us. Those places often have to do with feelings of helplessness and fear of being victimized. We know what is happening around us and we do what we can to better the situation, but we do not control outcomes. This is why it is important to honor what we do and to release what we cannot do. This is the position which allows us to maintain a healthy distance from unhealthy conditions. Keeping this distance frees us up to use our own energy to create the life we truly want to live.
