Because my Grandparents were getting tired and a bit overwhelmed with the packing, and loading, we had decided to ask my cousin if she wanted to help us for the day. She had got back saying that she had her stuff to do, so she wasn’t able to help us.
I guess I was reminded that you can’t really force someone to help you, no matter how much you would have liked them to help you. Yeah, sure I was disappointed that my cousin didn’t want to help us, but my Grandparents and I were able to help my mom move her things.
Today, I will not force anyone to do anything that they don’t have time for, or just aren’t able to help with. It doesn’t mean that they don’t love us, they still do, I know it. Sometimes people just say “no” for various reasons, and it usually isn’t a reflection of how they feel towards us.
