Hubby and I were trying to clean out our water filtration system. I suggested that while I held the water tank, he would clean the base out with the towel. I held the tank for less than a minute and my back started hurting. I did not let go because I wanted to finish what we started. In less than a minute and a half, my back gave way and I had to put the tank down. Even though I badly wanted to keep it lifted, I just could not. I accepted the truth of the situation and moved on to other things. My job at the site of the water filtration system was done. I had the strength to put it down.
In life, we sometimes have people we want to help – whether they want our help or not. I have a relative I have been trying to help by being supportive with my money and time. However, the relative’s negative attitude has been wearing me down. I finally realized today after a heavy conversation, that the load was too heavy for me to carry.
I have realized the truth of the situation and now accept it wholeheartedly. It is not my weakness but my strength to put it down.
