Be a leader – Show others how its done – You can help others!
Alice led the way and the whole party swam to the shore.
Alice takes on a new role – that of a leader. She did, after all, create the problem that they are all experiencing, albeit accidentally. She is the one who thinks through what has happened and tries to calm the creatures about her – even though that doesn’t always go right. And, she is the one being who takes charge and leads them out of the pool of tears and onto land. Just as you must do right now.
There is an emotional situation about you and it is affecting not only you, but other people, too. And, they are finding it hard to make their way back to steady ground. They are floundering amidst this sea of emotions within the present circumstances. It is up to you to lead them to the shore – to bring them back to the land. Now, this means you are to help everyone calm their emotions and come back to a more grounded, clear and stable place.
Even if you have been very emotional yourself, it is time to show leadership, set for the shore and help others make it there safely, too! Show everyone how its done – demonstrate what is best to do. Help those who, like you once were, are overwhelmed by their feelings. All you need to do is show them the way.
It is time to step into a leadership role. Others are looking to you to solve a problem or show them how to work through an emotional situation. Help others by showing them what needs to be done, not by telling them what to do. Calm your emotions, ground and center yourself, so you can be of greater service to others. You cannot help others overcome emotional distress until you have learned how to calm your own feelings. Be steadfast, strong, and encourage others by your own calm example.
