Through our lives many people come and go. We open our arms and hearts wide and welcome them. Some are relatives, some are friends and some are messengers destined for a brief stay.
Although they accept our invitation to bond we cannot tell them how to interact with us. We all have our own path to follow.
Every soul has his/her own way of living, programmed before their human creation. To interfere, even in the name of love, is paving a road to disaster.
So keep the welcome mat out, but allow your guests the freedom to be who they truly are.
