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.
