Relationships are a delicate dance of emotions, understandings, and connections. As we navigate through the sea of emotions, there’s often an innate desire to “fix” things, especially if we see someone we love struggling. But the card “Surrender the Idea You Can Fix Someone” reminds us of a profound truth.
There comes a point in any relationship when we realize that it’s not our responsibility, nor is it in our power, to change someone else. The idea of fixing someone else is rooted in good intentions, but it’s an endeavor fraught with pitfalls. We can’t wear the cape of a savior for someone who must find their own path to healing.
Each individual is responsible for their own journey, their own healing, and their own choices. When we try to intervene and reshape someone’s path according to our perceptions, we inadvertently rob them of their autonomy, their self-discovery, and the lessons that come with it.
It’s essential for each individual in a relationship to be accountable for their own healing. This doesn’t mean we can’t support, love, or be there for them. But there’s a distinct difference between supporting someone’s journey and trying to direct it.
So the next time the urge arises to “fix” someone, take a step back, breathe, and let the card’s wisdom guide you. Sometimes, the most significant act of love is letting someone find their own way.
