Midday Mindfulness XI

blind loyalty does not nourish anyone

Supporting those you love in their ignorance,
or even worse, continuously tolerating the harm they caused you, is a serious act of self-betrayal

When you see your loved ones doing
wrong or walking into deeper darkness,
do not follow just because of
an old bond you may share

You do not need to sync together
you do not need to burn together
you do not need to crash together

Even though it may be hard,
sometimes you have to listen to
your deepest sense of well-being
and go your own way to
preserve the good inside of you
