Linking up again with Kate Motaung and Five Minute Friday. This might become a habit.
This week’s prompt is should.
Should feels like a heavy weight, crushing and debilitating.
It restricts freedom.
It’s the weight of expectations that are too much to bear.
Sometimes, should serves a useful purpose. It gives us the kick in the hind quarters to move into action and accomplish what is good and right.
Sometimes, though, it paralyzes with regret and shame.
Where is there room for grace?
How can we leverage the helpful side of should without being smashed by the weight?
