Where I want to be and how to get there is Future thinking.
Where I am and living it the best I can is Now thinking.
Which is worthier thinking?
Don’t tell me how I should be thinking…..or feeling
Don’t lecture, don’t preach, don’t.
Give me room – stop smothering.
Worry about yourself – there is plenty of fodder there
to keep you plenty busy in your own house.
I’ll be OK, all by myself.
I’ll be OK, and yes, I do want you around –
just not all over me.
It will settle and I will be adult and arrive at the right thing without your guidance
or advice this time.
and let me just be.
will be just fine.
