What matters to one person is sometimes less important to another. When this difference of opinion gets aired between two people, problems sometimes arise and you and someone else appear to be clashing about what's important in some way now. It won't be difficult to find a common denominator if you are both willing to find it. Your argument surrounding imbalance in shared responsibility is valid and strong. Trust that you're right to make and air it.
The phrase 'train of thought' can be an appropriate one sometimes. Thoughts can appear suddenly, from out of nowhere. Sometimes, they go round and round a particular 'track'. They're also prone to arriving late! You've a lot to consider and process now. Focus on one thought that truly needs addressing. Give your time and effort to the one thought or idea that you find most difficult to ignore. The rest really can be pushed to one side.
It would be easy to succumb and follow the lead of others. It would appear preferable to accept what's being imposed for the sake of an easy or easier life. Why would you want to do any of the above though? Following paths of least resistance would be indicative of a belief that you're beaten or have little to fight for. Soon, you'll see a very good reason why you can stick to a belief and not allow yourself to be swayed or cajoled. Remain strong for a little bit longer.
'All lies and jests, still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest'. Those words from Simon and Garfunkel, although slightly sexist, hold much relevance now. We all have a tendency to 'gloss over' that which we would prefer not to have to deal with. It takes much proactivity to confront something we would prefer to leave alone for a bit longer. You're being encouraged to summon faith and courage now. Face what needs to be faced.
Taking a backward step always requires a certain amount of care to be taken. There tend to be limits to how much we can see and a certain amount of faith needs to be given. Somewhere in your world, a backward step of sorts is required if you're to either see a situation more clearly or determine the best way forward. It is time to assess a scenario that you might have become too close to. Trust that, by distancing yourself, you are strengthening your position, not hindering it.
People who talk loudly and confidently often cause those around them to feel obliged to listen to them. Think, for example, how someone barking orders into a megaphone conveys an air of authority. All such people can do is request we do as we're told. Their words cannot make us do so. With that in mind, consider how much of a choice you have in an area of your world where something is being demanded of you. Someone's bark really is worse than their bite.
Albert Einstein once said 'if an idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it'. You're likely to be focused on an idea or brainwave that you believe could do much to solve an issue that has perplexed you for too long. You've been unsure how to progress a particular situation or ensure some level of security exists within an area that has appeared uncertain. Let the ideas that present themselves reveal themselves fully to you. One in particular could be heaven sent.
When constructing a building, much thought is often given to its foundations. If a structure is to be safe and stand a chance of experiencing longevity, then there are, quite literally, ground rules that need to be considered and adhered to. The same applies in an area of your world. Before you can embark upon a new chapter or arrangement of some kind, there is something that you must acknowledge and understand. Once done, you'll be in a safer and stronger position to continue.
Sometimes, we have good reason to believe we are sane, controlled and knowledgeable and everyone around us is missing more than one crucial point. What is glaringly obvious to us is something others appear oblivious to. Lately, you've wondered why you have had to invest so much effort in persuading those around you to acknowledge something important to you. The sky intends to encourage certain people to finally be more receptive and supportive.
No matter how you slice what's happening now, it all comes back to a need for you to have more faith and boost your confidence levels. Such advice always sounds obvious or easy to give but not only do you need to convince yourself of your ability to see a certain plan to completion, there are a few others who are looking at you, wondering how you might respond or react. A pleasing outcome relies on you believing you can attain one. Just remain confident that you can.
What is it going to take to get certain people to do what you need them to do? There appears to be a great many promises being made but, as far as you're concerned, not much is actually materializing. There's a certain person you really want to know is on your side yet they appear very distant or uninterested. Your relationship with this person is about change and in ways you've wanted it to change for some time. All you need to do is allow them to come to you.
Is your hand being forced in some way? Have you had to accept an undesirable situation that, if you could have controlled or influenced, you would have? Somehow, somewhere, a situation has been dictated to you regarding how it is going to be and where it goes from here. Part of you might be frustrated or even upset by this but hidden among the dark is more than one ray of light. You might not see recent events as an improvement but need to trust that they are.
