We’ve all gone through it, but how do you handle it? Especially when its caused by loved ones? Do you try to logically understand what caused it? Do you let it roll off your back? Or do you lash out at the individual in hopes that they feel the same? And how do THEY handle it? Do they act as if they just don’t care? Or do they try to understand what you’re going through as a result of their actions (or inactions)? What’s ...expected on both sides of the equation? Sure we’ve all gone through it. But what we do and say in the midst of the pain can really set the scene for life’s next act. The bottom line is how we act and react (both parties) can mean the difference between continuing or diminishing the disappointment and hurt. Neither side should get engulfed solely in their own emotions. An equation means both sides are equal……in actions, responsibilities and expectations. No one becomes defensive unless they feel they’ve been put on the defensive.
Actions = reactions. That’s human algebra.
Here is today’s thought:
"Because you're not what I would have you be, I blind myself to who, in truth, you are." ----Madeleine L'Engle
