This Is What Happens When A Person Is Hurtful
This Week's Simple Tip
I came across this image awhile back, and put it aside because I found it intriguing. I knew at some point it would come in handy and now the time seems appropriate.
Learning grace has never been more important.
Tension is high right now as a result of the pandemic, the protesting and the political bantering. This causes some people to be short-tempered, and say and/or do things to others that can be hurtful.
What is important to understand is that it is very natural for people who are in pain themselves to cause pain for others, thinking it will help them feel better.
This is why it isn't worthwhile to waste your energy and emotions on taking their actions personally. Most likely you have done nothing wrong. It is the person with the internal struggle who has the problem, not you.
Instead, show grace with understanding, forgiveness and compassion.
This Week's Focus:
This week, instead of feeling bad yourself for the actions of others, recognize they are struggling themselves and gracefully offer understanding, forgiveness and compassion.
