I recently wrote about learning a lesson for the umpteenth time that what someone does is much more reflective of who they really are, than what they say – or write on a website.
This applies to me too.
I do hope that what I write reflects who I am. I know what I write reflects who I am striving to be.
For those I have hurt emotionally, I sincerely apologize. For those I have hurt spiritually, words can never express the self-loathing I have for doing so.
Self-awareness is the key. How we talk to each other matters. How we treat each other matters too. Especially in this cyber world.
When I find that being around someone causes me to ‘cringe’ with increasing frequency, I know it is time to ‘move on’. This isn’t ‘arrogance’ or a ‘lack of mental capacity’. It is simply self-preservation.
Sometimes the most loving thing we can do for another (and ourselves) is walk away.
