Respond With Love!




I forgive myself for reacting in an unkind way.

I choose to respond to all needs with loving kindness.

I treat others as I want to be treated by others.

I always receive what I give.

Respond with Love!

How do you respond?

If you expect to change anything, respond with love.

If you want to make a difference, respond with forgiveness.

If you are trying to teach a better way, respond with what you want.

Love teaches Love.

Anger increases anger.

Gratitude brings you appreciation.

Helpfulness shows how to be helpful.

It is true; Show others what you want to be. 

If anything needs to be changed, show what you want.

It only increases the same behavior to react by copying negative behavior.

Everything unlike love, kindness and respect, is calling for love, kindness and respect.

On the highway, in the classroom, at home or work, unloving behavior is crying out for love.

Unconscious children and upset adults need positive attention.

They need us to listen deeply and understand their need.

Crying babies and angry adults are asking for help.

When you experience an unkind person of any age….first listen and ask:

Are they hungry?

Are they angry?

Are they lonely?

Are they hurting?

Are they hurting?

Are they fearful?

Are they tired?

What is their underlying need?

When anyone is unhappy, there is an unmet need.

When you are unkind or unloving, ask yourself, what is your need?

When our needs are unmet, we usually react with more negativity.

The same is true for everyone.

Learn to listen with compassion, kindness, patience and consideration.

Sometimes you can ask directly and often the other is unavailable for answering.

We must know ourselves and others well enough to respond to human nature.

We can make a difference when we respond with love and peace rather then react with fear and anger.

Take the time to learn and respond with your best.

Take the effort to listen and offer what is needed.

Give your best and your kindness be received.

Notice that it gives your peace to offer peace to another.

Read the following on Languages of Love and Fear and learn how everyone needs us to care.

The only mistake we ever make is when we forget to Love.
