Be Firm With People & Contribute

06.30 E&M. Spoke to Karaj about his latest feedback. We talked about me being firm with people. This resulted from my comments about Robert displaying his usual excitement for the changes he wishes to make in his life just as he has in the past, only to repeat the same patterns over and over again. Instead of making such comments and thereby letting him off the hook, Karaj tells me I need to look inside myself for the part of me which can make a contribution to him – and to others too.

If he is to be around me and to stay around me, then he has to sort himself out. It is up to me to challenge him firmly and in doing so I will resolve some of my issues too. Don’t let Robert off the hook. Do something. This applies to everybody who occupies my space. Be firm with people because ultimately we will all benefit.
