Consider this quote from Thich Nhat Hanh’s Peace is Every Step, “When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. ⁣You look into the reasons it is not doing well. ⁣It may need fertilizing, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce.”

In our relationships, it can be challenging to see how we contribute to a lack of growth. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you what you need to take ownership of, the things you have the power to change.
