Title: I have lives to change including my own. I can’t be tossed in the ocean with a brick tied to my ankle anymore. I must surround myself with people who care about me and about my journey at least in the sense of being supportive.

Some people are like cacti. You can hardly get close enough to them without getting pricked. Having some challenges in your journey can be enlightening, but some don’t challenges you don’t have to endure for so long, that maybe they are part of the path but for you to make a choice.
I have had to cut some people loose from my life because they were not aiding my growth anymore. I tried for several years to help them come along, but who am I to say this is part of their journey. My path is for me and yours is for you. I am just a part of the scenery in yours and you are in mine.  But can we help each other somehow?
I often use the analogy that we are all walking to our destination whatever that is. We walk through grass, sand, water, hills, ice and snow, and high mountains to get to our oasis. As I walk through the sand in my journey I can often assist someone else who is entering the sand in their path. I will look to someone who has climbed the mountain when I am ready to climb mine.
But what about those people that are not helping is any way. They are hurting us along the journey. They might be those young kids hiding behind the snow banks throwing snowballs when we walk by. What do we do with them?  Here’s how you hug a cactus.
First water them and see if they choose to grow; come along on their own path. Make sure they have enough sunlight; love to become fresh and colorful. Make sure they have plenty of soil; support them to help them when things get rough as they always do.
Secondly if that works then enjoy them; walk with them while they endure. If it doesn't work then offer them as a gift at a white elephant party and part as friends. This is a very difficult thing to do. As I have done it to two of my most favorite people. I wanted nothing more than for them to come along but for several years they disagreed and were less and less supportive of my journey. I had to cut them loose. When I say part as friends I basically mean I still love them very much and would gladly be there for either of them if they ever came back around but I can’t have them in my life at this time.
For some it may sound harsh but I have dreams to attain while I’m here. I have lives to change including my own. I can’t be tossed in the ocean with a brick tied to my ankle anymore. I must surround myself with people who care about me and about my journey at least in the sense of being supportive.
You can hug a cactus if you do it from a distance and with much love, patience and grace. The cacti in our lives need people like us. We just need to recognize them for who they are currently and hope that someday they will choose to walk along with us.
I wish, hope and pray that my friends come around, but this is their life and who am I to say they are not on their own journey and me being out of their lives isn't part of it.
