Love what you can love and let the rest go. Do you ever notice that you have a relative… a parent, a brother, a mother-in-law, someone who you care about and yet they drive you out of your mind? Their behavior is insane. It makes you want to dip into the Prozac, or open a vein or go buy them a set of cement shoes. “Come on darling, let’s go get some shoes.” Well, what do you do about that? The reality is that it is hard to reconcile the gap between the fact that you really love that person and that you really have trouble with their behavior. You might thrash around trying to figure out what to do. Look at it this way… love what you can love and let the rest go. Love what you can love and let the rest go, that’s common sense. You can simply love what’s lovable and quit fussing about the rest. It makes sense.
