A tendency towards codependency
Lifes big lesson from Andrea Gibson
If you have a tendency towards codependency, like all of us.
I want to share something I learned years ago.
A butterfly, trying to find its way out of the cocoon can be difficult to watch.
So it’s common for people to actually try to peel back the layers of the cocoon and help the butterfly into the air.
But, a butterfly’s lifespan can be greatly shortened if its exit from the cocoon isn't its own doing.
The butterfly’s struggle is actually a gift to its chances of thriving.
Isn't that amazing?
To become who we’re meant to become, the becoming must be ours.
That isn't to say not to help each other.
I think the fact that we need each other is one of the most beautiful parts of humanity, but to also understand the gift we give in supporting one another to make our own way into the sky.
