One Response to “Halloween Scarecrows (and one jack-o’-lantern)”
Sometimes it is scary just letting people be themselves without trying to “fix” them. Some people don’t want “fixed.” They like who they are.
There’s a whole syndrome related to the need to change others; it’s called “Fixer Syndrome” and mindtools talks about it.
I especially like this quote:
“When you help, you see life as weak. When you fix, you see life as broken. When you serve, you see life as whole. Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service the work of the soul.”
