We Reap What We Sew

Nobody plants onions and expects to harvest strawberries!  Unfortunately, many people treat others with hatred, tell lies, and fail to take responsibility for the things they say and do that harm others and are shocked and angry when they receive the same mistreatment in return. People who say and do things that bring harm to others don’t like themselves because they destroy relationships, are ostracized, and end up alone at the end of their lives. On the other hand, if we are kind, loving, forgiving, compassionate, understanding, communicate well, and honor our own boundaries and those of the other person we will reap great relationships that are supportive and fulfilling.

When We Judge Others We’re Judging Ourselves

Everything we say and do is filtered through our self-image.  It’s emotionally healthy to avoid judging others we meet since we aren’t in their bodies living their lives and have no idea what experiences have made them who they are today. A foolish person is quick to judge while a wise individual understands that by getting to know the other person better they can avoid making incorrect assumptions.  Judging others is also foolish because we tend to assume they possess flaws that we are unwilling to acknowledge and resolve within ourselves.  By withholding judgment and getting to know others we improve the quality of our relationships. If we can find and nurture the positive within ourselves while working on our own flaws we will be better equipped to see the good in others and appreciate that it’s our job to change ourselves and not others.

Vengeance Is Foolish

Vengeance is foolish because returning bad behavior with bad behavior doesn’t put out the fire of anger nor improve the relationship we have with ourselves and others. Wisdom dictates that we understand that hateful people will always be around and that by controlling our temper, removing these people from our circle of acquaintances, and surrounding ourselves with loving, thoughtful, kind, and compassionate people we will live better and more fulfilling lives. It’s also important to understand that hateful people hate themselves the most and will definitely reap what they sew.  By sewing seeds of kindness, forgiveness, and compassion we will reap great relationships with extraordinary and loving people.  Leave the hateful people to work out their own undoing.


The Power Of Forgiveness

Power of Forgivness

Forgiveness Can Free You From The Prison Of Conflict & Unhappiness

Do You Understand The Purpose Of Asking For Forgiveness?

Prior to asking for forgiveness you need to reflect upon the words and behavior you engaged in to offend the other person, be willing to accept responsibility for your words and actions, and be willing to change your words and behavior to reflect a change of heart. Are you ready to respect the boundaries and ideas of others with the understanding that good words and actions directed towards others brings about excellent outcomes that strengthen your relationships? Granting forgiveness is easier when there is evidence of changed behavior which shows respect for the other person, yourself, and ultimately for the relationship. The Power Of Forgiveness


Good Parenting Is Not Accidental

Good parents have a healthy level of self-esteem, possess and teach healthy personal boundaries, are loving, kind, supportive, listen and instruct by good example, have a sense of humor, able to control their temper, excellent communicators who have no problem saying “no” or hearing the word “no”. Good parents also teach their children about the interdependent nature of life and how being thoughtful, kind, caring, and respectful of others builds lasting and fulfilling relationships for life.
