Firm Consistent and Forthright
Here is what I was thinking:
When you do not respond to drama, the drama will die out. When you react to it, it just adds fuel to the flame but how is it possible not to respond???? How do you choose to be silent when all you want to do is scream? What if what the person is saying isn’t true? The first step is to recognize the drama for what it is – CHAOS. Rarely is this about being right. Drama is an external force that can easily sweep you away to a dark place. Don’t let it!
When all else fails, here is what I know for sure:
Beginning today, everyone you meet, treat as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all of the care, kindness and understanding you can muster and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same, I promise.
After all, what you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it… create something beautiful. We have to be fair, firm and consistent. Being forthright is an important ingredient to becoming a better you.
