It would be easy to succumb and follow the lead of others. It would appear preferable to accept what's being imposed for the sake of an easy or easier life. Why would you want to do any of the above though? Following paths of least resistance would be indicative of a belief that you're beaten or have little to fight for. Soon, you'll see a very good reason why you can stick to a belief and not allow yourself to be swayed or cajoled. Remain strong for a little bit longer.
What isn't needed now is a long and drawn out conversation or discussion. What isn't required is tense or heated negotiation. All are on offer if you want them but you obviously don't. You're prepared to show some level of kindness toward someone and all you want is for them to do the same. If you and someone else can have an open and very honest conversation that is driven by kindness and empathy, then something truly wonderful can happen that inspires both of you.
If we stop to ask someone directions in an unfamiliar city, we want to know the quickest or easiest way to get to where we need to be. As appreciative as we might be to be told the history of the city and how various streets got their name, it's not essential information we need when we need to be somewhere. You don't need explanations now. What you want and need is direction. Avoid believing this requires explanation from anyone in any way.
To feel considerably better about a particular uncertain situation, you don't need dramatic gestures to be made. Neither do you need sudden surges of reassurance. All you need is a faint glimmer of hope that a situation you feel holds little in the way of change can actually change in a way that offers reassurance and provides some level of happiness. You want to know a situation isn't going to remain as it is indefinitely. Have absolute faith in the fact it is improving.
Even anyone without a sales background knows that convincing someone of a point requires making it clearly and highlighting the benefits to the person in need of convincing. It makes sense that, if someone is to accept what we're trying to tell them, then a case needs to be made that encourages them to nod and accept it rather than become defensive. There's something you need to 'sell' to someone else now. With diplomacy and tact, you can make your point and win.
When we're in good moods, we're easily persuaded. When defenses are lowered, we're receptive to what's being asked of us. Because we feel good within ourselves, we're more obliging. My making this point surrounds a need for you to be generous with an obliging disposition now. To repair something between you and another is going to require you listen, nod and appreciate how what can be achieved through kindness will far outweigh what defensiveness will ever achieve.
Why do people behave a certain way? That's a question you're likely asking yourself now but we need to address how broad and, in many ways, rhetoric, it is. You adhere to strict criteria about how people should behave and interact with each other during finite timescales on this planet. All you wish is for others to adhere to similar beliefs and principles. Don't ponder for too long why some people are doing what they're doing. Accept what you're doing is right and honest.
If something you want was easily achieved, would you see it as important as you do now? Part of you is keen to embark upon a challenge being presented to you. Part of you is willing to rise to it in the belief that, when you do achieve it, the process will have been considerably more worthwhile. You're right to be rising to a certain challenge now and equally right to have absolute faith in the fact that you will succeed.
Where does a line need to be drawn? This relates in some way to you investing time and effort in the pursuit of something that really ought to be given less attention. There is something you're keen to retain control of and, if you're honest, there's also something about the 'chase' being more appealing than the 'catch'. It's time to review whether or not your time and effort could be invested toward something - or someone – more appropriate. The sky suggests it can be.
The struggle you've grown used to is waning now. You can hopefully sense this but the sky insists that a need to come to terms in ways you've had to of late are becoming less pertinent. You've gone beyond the call of duty in some ways but you've also had an obligation to fulfill to more than one person who has relied on you in some way. The reward offered to you now involves a well deserved ability to relax. You'll soon see how appreciative you'll be of this.
There are many people who want us to come to them with specific problems. They wait for us to contact them and then seize the opportunity to impart advice based on knowledge, skills or experience they believe they have that we don't. It's easy to get drawn into discussions with people who sound knowledgeable and because you need help or advice in some way, you could be inclined to believe all you're being told. Be careful and discriminating now.
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Sounds simple enough but it's the latter two points we often struggle with. We tend to be able to conceive clearly in our minds what we'd like to see happen but it's the believing and achieving part that sometimes poses a problem and this usually has more to do with doubt in our abilities than anything else. You can, with much less effort than you think, achieve something you can see clearly in your mind now.
