Love involves trust and patience and forgiveness for our human flaws… we are all perfectly imperfect and so wonderfully different… so accepting others for their entirety, even when you enter into disagreements or battles of egos.
Next time you find yourself in conflict with another, get in touch with your inner child and play the opposite’s game for a while.
Look at each situation through rose-tinted glasses… Give the other the benefit of the doubt… “if this person loves me then they’re not trying to cause me pain. If they’re causing me pain it’s because they are in a place of pain…”
Try looking through eyes of compassion and understanding “If I saw a child on the street in pain, how would I approach it? What would I say to comfort them and make them feel safe.”
We tend to operate either from fear or love. And the best treatment or cure for fear… is love.
We are so quick to judge and swipe when someone doesn’t behave the way we want them to, but that is their prerogative and you always have the choice as to whether or not to partake in the conversation or relationship. But, before you disregard them, try first to understand them and to show them love.
