When you love somebody, you want to see them happy and healthy.
If you see your loved one struggling or making poor choices, what do you do?
Do you leave them alone and hope they figure it out?
Do you try to guide, encourage? …which probably looks like nagging and controlling…
Do you give them information (pamphlets, links to websites, etc.) and hope they’ll make some changes?
How do you stop yourself from trying to help? Or should you?
If you stop trying to help, will they interpret that as meaning you don’t care?
Don’t you want her/him to know you’re fighting for them?
Does their behavior cause you unhealthy stress and drag you down?
Where is that fine line between helping and hurting ourselves and others?
