Work with Love


Elisa never felt accepted by her mother and was tried by the fear triggers her mother had over her. Elisa wanted to break free and find herself, but her father kept encouraging her to make amends.

Elisa felt torn. She had to move on to find herself, yet she was drawn to return. In anger, Elisa said to her friend, “I must cut her off because she’s manipulating me to keep control! She never believes in me! Even when I’m in trouble, she turns the other way! She’s nothing as a mother should be and enjoys making me feel low!”

Elisa’s friend calmly said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. Elisa, I know she’s driving you crazy. You won’t be able to find understanding by building your anger. Make amends with yourself and work with love to move forward.”

 

Inspired by “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King Jr
