Free yourself from struggling with dysfunctional people by REFUSING TO TRY TO CONTROL THEM. Instead, be totally honest.— Martha Beck, Daily Coach Tips

Not sure how the above quote fits - but I have been struggling with my relationship with one of my sisters - who brings you down - emotionally - when I chat with her. The cloud of depression around her - is just so heavy.

So... How do I wish to soar?

I wish to soar above this. Maybe if I can apply the quote to her - I can soar.

I tried to free myself from her a bit - this last phone call - she made to me. I was honest with her about some of my health problems and how I tried to rise above them.

I will soar above this and I will be totally honest about it.

I will soar high like a bird.

I will free myself from the feelings that come when I talk with her.

Relationships with family can get tricky, but good for you for rising above.

As you wish for yourself, I also wish for you.

Yes you will Lucy ! YOu will soar , its hard enough to be happy with our own struggles but when people you love are depressed , you have to leave them be , because you only can try so much to get them out of that funkiness , and they have to want to get out .

As Lucy wishes for herself, I wish for her also. : )
