Encouragement

There is a fine line between support and strangulation.  What once felt like a gentle hug can soon feel like suffocation.  How do we know when too much love is too much?? 

Being a good friend/sister/girlfriend/partner/wife is no easy task.  That much I know.  I want the people that I love to know that I love them.  I also do not want to drive them crazy.  This is difficult.  I wish it weren’t, but it is.  Everyone always thinks they know what’s best for you.  Unfortunately, only you can decide what’s going to make you happy in the long run. 

That being said, sometimes we need someone to provide the wake-up call we need.  Life gets comfortable, people get lazy.  I get that.  The tricky part is encouraging a person you love without badgering.  How is that done?

Sometimes a misplaced suggestion can me someone feel like shit.  Sometimes said suggestion can come in the nick of time.  This thing called love is a total crapshoot.
