You can treat others kindly, giving them respect and dignity even when they disappoint or irritate you. Take a deep breath before choosing your words in response to those you find personally challenging. Then, acknowledge what they have to say, even if you disagree. Do this first, and try to listen without judging. Ask Me for help when being kind and respectful is hard for you. Bring the offense you’ve experienced to Me and ask for My help to be understanding in response. You don’t have to hide your difficult emotions from Me. I get it. Let Me validate you when others cannot out of pride or ego. I will help you with perspective and with what to say in response. Remember, love always wins out in the end. Choose loving-kindness over being “right”.
