#17. “If you think about where a person is coming from, what they’ve been through in their life, how they’ve been raised, you will find it easier to forgive, understand and accept that they don’t and may never look at things the same way that you do.”
This one is golden.
Do you want to be empowered? Free yourself from the frustration? Save some time and energy?
Ok, now I sound like an advertisement.
The truth is…
When this little light bulb of enlightenment switched on in my brain, it changed my life.
Not everyone was blessed with a loving beginning. They are what they came from. They may not be able to see or feel more than that. Not everyone has sailed a calm sea without drowning in pain or suffering…and some are still drowning. Some have a point to make, an axe to grind or a need to be heard. Some people can only feel better by making others feel worse.
Some people will not change. Some people don’t need to change…not for you.
Sometimes you have to rearrange your thoughts, open your mind and accept.
Let them be who they are. Let it be what it is.
A huge burden can be lifted when you do.
