We may even create a stern look with our perception of wise words to follow, hoping that our point will not just be received but understood?
Maybe that "person" hurt you or made a mistake?
How do you respond? Do you take the time to speak your feelings or do you react emotionally wanting to again "teach them, a lesson"?
FYI nothing will ever be truly learned through the lens of anger, fear or frustration. If you plan to "teach" do so, by leading by example.
During a meditation today I heard the words, "I love you anyways".
I understand my husband and I will not always agree on everything. There are times where our kids will repeat the same action even after being encouraged not to. There are times when friends and family let me down. There are times when I mess up, when I forget or when I become mindless. In those moments, the words that would be the most healing is "I love you anyways".
We all deserve to be love despite what we have done in the past or the mistakes we commit in this moment.
I want you all to know that, I love you anyways!
I use to avoid moments of pain. Now, I'm going to embrace them just to have more reasons to use the words "I love you anyways" with full intention and compassion. Oppose to the stern look with my prescriptions of wise words.
As a spiritual being it is our responsibility to communicate our needs and forgive ourselves and others in order to evolve personally and in our relationships.
We are here to mess up, we are here to pick each other up off of the floor when we've been kicked down, even if we were the ones doing the kicking. We are here to learn, to love and forgive.
Who's in the " I love you anyways!" campaign?
