Good Thursday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: the best reaction is no reaction until you’ve thought it through. We all make mistakes with our kids, spouses and friends. No one’s perfect and we may let our feelings dictate our reactions. Most of life’s situations don’t demand an immediate response, and taking time to think about how you want to respond will help you choose a better response. Telling your partner, your child or your friend to give you some time to think about it shows you’re taking their situation seriously, and it also shows them you value them and their concerns. Answering with anger, frustration, or an “I don’t care” response makes it less likely your loved one will feel loved or confide in you. If you’re one of those people who never knows what’s going on, there’s a chance you may want to change the way you react to the concerns of others.
