If you put your energy around what you want, that’s what you’ll get.
One client told me that she had been ambivalent about all of the questions her dad had about her dissertation. But she decided to make a positive out of the parental interest. She saw that her dissertation could be a bridge in her relationship with her father, a relationship that had in the past suffered from a lack of communication.
She decided to talk about her dissertation whenever he expressed an interest. It worked for her.
Could you seek the positive and honor what is good about the relationships in your life?
What would best serve your goals?
If you want to keep a special person in your life, if you want to keep friends in your life, if you want the support of your parents, it’s time to talk with all of them about the demands you’re facing and to tell them how their support can help you.
If they don’t understand, then you’ve done all you can. But who knows—you might be pleasantly surprised.
Reclaim your power. Focus on moving your writing forward.
