From the Cedar Runes comes "Mannaz:"
The joyous man is dear to his kinsmen;
yet every man is doomed to fail his fellow;
~ Anglo-Saxon poem
The Anglo-Saxon verse about Mannaz (Mann) is so appropriate for the situation above. No matter what I do, no matter how I try to fix what is broken, I am simply human. I will fail in some areas and disappoint other people. And though I do believe I should treat all people with as much compassion as possible, I am not responsible for another person's happiness, just as he or she is not responsible for mine.
