Friday Flash 55 - Homework

If you do someone else's homework, they do not learn their own lessons. If you give support but allow them to do their homework then they learn their lessons. It appears that by doing other's life homework for them, I have not done my own homework and therefore am not learning my own life lessons.

Every Friday write a poem, story or limerick of 55 words, no more, no lessAnd then report to the G-man!!

I think we can be so focused on the needs of others that we forget there are some lessons in all of this for us. Great post.

I can relate completely to your 55 ~ a consummate caregiver to all others, but myself. We hurt ourselves in the long run and those we care most about. Touching reminder ~ thank you.

My 55 for this week is here.

And that, too, is a lesson learned.

That realization in itself is a big lesson & half the battle won!

As I was writing the last sentence of this I realized that the lesson was being written. I hope to really apply what I have learned by this to the best of my ability. Thank you all so much for the comments:)
