Ultimatums, threats, demands… they don’t work.

Ultimatums, threats, demands… they don’t work. If you think they do, you are only fooling yourself. You have no right to dictate the path of another, make demands upon them, ask them to change, or set an ultimatum… no matter what the circumstances. Nor will they work anyways, at least long term. Even as a committed partner, parent, teacher, you have no right… even if we don’t agree with the path someone else is choosing. Despite what you believe, you are not a higher being to someone else who knows what is best. We each have one physical container, one soul, one mind, and one path. Each of us has been given the gift of free will… That is our inherent right. True love is gentle guidance, unconditional; recognized by owning your own power, being the example, making yourself happy, living from a place of truth and strength, and being unaffected by circumstances outside of you or beyond your control. If there is a person you believe needs to change, it is time to look in the mirror… © Jodi Healy
