“Be friendly to everybody; protect yourself; people sometimes want a piece of you for no good reason; and always do things out of love not fear.”
“Everybody can use more love. Do not take offense if people are rude or unkind or seem like they are trying to hurt your feelings. You cannot know what is happening with them. Send them love no matter how they act. It will come back to you many times over as increased love in your life.”
Always remember that no matter how rude a customer is to you, how unkind the store person might be or how frustrating your family is that day, that what we only see is half a story. We may not be able to control or protect ourselves from their unkindness, but we can control how we act toward them. Let’s choose to send them patience, understanding and most of all, love – it has the incredible power to transform their day and give them just a little more hope in humanity.
