As you begin your week, I hope you will take a moment to understand that others’ behavior towards us is more about where they are mentally and emotionally and has nothing to do with you. We are living in unprecedented times, and each of us is experiencing challenges. Understanding this offers us an opportunity to extend grace and compassion to others without internalizing or personalizing their actions and allows us to take no offense. And remember, as you are extending grace and kindness to others, be sure to extend the same grace to yourself. Take no offense to our own actions and behavior.
As you begin your week, I hope you will take a moment to acknowledge your connection to others and understand that the decisions we make affect others, and the decisions others make affect us. I hope you will be thoughtful of others in your decision-making and actions, and remember, we are all connected.
