I was just awaken from a dream of the past that I find interesting. I will not bore you with the dream, but I will tell you the conclusion. I discovered from this dream that I can put undue pressure on myself by being overly protective. I tend to shield those I care about from natural processes that they must go through on their journey of life. An example from my dream was my Grandmother. I always saw her as the queen of our family. In my eyes she could do nothing wrong. In our family, I subconsciously assumed the role as head knight. I would defend our family from anyone or anything that threatened our existence. The problem with that is I never gave room for my Grandmother to make a mistake. Through mistakes we learn, through mistakes we grow, through mistakes we develop, and through mistakes we gain wisdom. Many of the battles I fought were unnecessary. Many of my perceived battles were only mistakes on my Grandmothers natural path of learning, growing, and understanding.
I discovered from this dream, that even with my best intentions, I must move out of the way.
