respect

Relationships are very important to me and family is a priority in this lifetime.  Reaching out to love, yet respect differences, and accept accountability yet moving forward instead of attacking the past, is the best that a rational and emotionally mature person can prefer.

Some love confrontation or nurturing their anger; It is not helpful to strengthening or maintaining any healthy communication and reinforces the hurt dysfunction.  The dynamics don’t improve and the wounds persist.

The largest act of rebellion is working to change the context in a messy and complicated situation to one of self-preservation and fighting as hard, for yourself, as you have for others.  It is not easy for one who cares so deeply and, certainly, I have been an easy and satisfying target for verbal attack.

Trying to shift a mindset and ingrained habit of behavior is very difficult.  Many of us have prescribed roles and distinctions of thinking, reinforced by others, that we are supposed to save everyone and fix every situation, or we are at fault.

Mature relationships take both sides willing to accept that we can love one another while still disagreeing.  Respecting each individual, instead of trying to continue to wound with past patterns of negativity, is the only healthy way to move forward.  Growth and self-esteem take time, but self-respect and willingness to walk away from someone else’s anger, as hard as it is to do, is the only way to take the first step.

bewildered_perplexed_growth

If you want to see a bewildered face, give a compliment. I have found that so few kind things are said or shared, with complete sincerity and with no benefit whatsoever, that it confuses people.

It may sound silly, but I have seen it happen so many times. My mother always taught me that it costs nothing to compliment a person, but it can mean so much to someone.

There is no undercurrent of attraction or any other inferred relationship, merely telling someone how nice they look makes them stand taller and boosts the endorphins in a stressful day.

There must be something positive in each person (I keep hoping, and over-trying to find it to be sure in some cases)and with an empathetic eye and a confident spirit, we can share the kindness we would want for ourselves.

When we behave kindly to others with intention, we strengthen ourselves as well.

How do you improve yourself?

go where u r celebrated

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”

– Arundhati Roy
