Do it. Go for it. But mimic your quarrels as birds do.
If you’ll notice, most birds jam up against each other – show their stuff – make their meaning known – and then they separate.
They don’t linger on conflict. They don’t pout. They don’t stew over who-did-what-to-whom.
Birds make themselves and their viewpoints known. Whether it’s territory or just a bad vibe, birds let off steam.
This is symbolic…to me, at least.
It speaks to me of giving our friends, family members, and partners a little bit of space. Let those close to us flare up (in healthy ways), and then let that quarrel fly away. I mean…really….is it necessary to hold onto this stuff anyway? I’m betting 90% of our squabbles are just fluff.
Clash if you must. But do as most birds do…fly out of the storm, and rise above.
It’s a brave heart who is willing to forget, forgive, and move to higher places.
