Good Tuesday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: how others treat you is a sign of their character; how you react is a sign of yours. It would be great if everyone was considerate, polite, kind and logical, but they’re not. You cannot control others, but you can control yourself. Learning to think before you react is no small thing and being able to react with class is a sign of self-confidence and leadership skills. Just because someone provokes you and shows their lack of integrity doesn’t mean you have to follow them by lowering yours. Treat others with respect and ask for respect in return, but don’t let someone who will never understand, undermine your class. People who mistreat others need a dramatic reaction to feel powerful, make sure you don’t give them one.
