I have a long time, Sagittarian client, she’s in a hole at this time. She typically upbeat, but she took a one-two punch, recently, from people she cares for deeply.
She’s been down longer than I am comfortable with. I’m used to her bouncing back, so today I decided I’d better take a new tack. Hard.
She’s trying to get these people who hurt her to care. They don’t. She’s in the water, flailing all around. They see her there and look away. It’s ugly, isn’t it? But it’s true.
“They’ll be back,” I said. “But not as long as you’re in this pool…with the measles,” I said. She laughed. “Whining,” I added. “They’re not going to come near you because they don’t want to hear you whine, or catch the measles which means you are going to have to get yourself out this mess. Get out of the ditch, back on the road. Once you do and you move along, believe me, they’ll be running to catch up, because the fact is, you can’t be replaced…”
I went on to tell her that when people see a body on the ground, they tend to step on it. There are times you have to find your inner fortitude and get yourself up, get your voice back and your authentic self.
Here is my question: why is it that people who love you, leave you drowning in your pool of measles, and the more you whine and flail, the less they even look your way?
