Different Perspectives

In life, we often times hear the saying "Treat others as you would wish to be treated". This seems easy enough to understand, but what if you grew up not being treated well and the only signs of love was through abuse. Then this saying as well as the others which we set our standards of behavior become distorted. As we go through life, we take it for granted that everyone comes with the best intentions or at least is not intentially out to harm us. In fact, we are surprised and sometimes react in anger when we are not treated well because as far as we know we have done nothing to bring on the negative behavior. We have control only of our own words and actions, so be mindful when placing judgement on others. Today, listen carefully. By taking the time to truly listen to others, we learn more about ourselves and of others.

Everyone sees the beauty in nature differently...
