Starting with myself

Sometimes I find myself wanting to “fix” people. Wanting so much to help them to forgive, let go of grudges, move forward, stop being stuck. But I know I’m trying too hard when I start feeling a tell-tale tightness in the chest, start repeating in my head the many sermons I would love to preach to a person.

That’s when I know it’s time to go back to myself. Ask for my own healing and joy and recognition of forgiveness and love that is there for me. Then I can lose the judgmentalism and go back to a listening, compassionate mode that allows the other person room to be open and humble and growing.
