Are you tired, thirsty, droopy, in need of a little TLC, down for the count?
Or are you...
Energetic, perky, well-cared for, nurtured, lighting up a room?
I can plainly see the power of caring vs. the apathy of neglect in these photos.
If I don't take care of my little hydrangea, it tells me by dropping it's head. If I don't take care of my family and friends, it's not always so obvious. They may just pull away or they may act out. It is up to me to be aware of what they need from our relationship.
If someone neglects to take care of me, what do I do? Do I just sulk, go away, or nag? Or do I ask for what I need and want?
It is actually up to me to help others learn what I need from the relationship, isn't it?
Do you believe that?
