Right when I needed it, I received the perfect comment on a post from earlier today. A dear friend- the friend who was right there for me every step of the way during my dark period in October 2016 (right before I came to Boston)- said:
“Ask yourself, ‘what would love do?’ Then do that.”
Ah, yes. Another perfect message at the perfect time.
This reminds me of “turning the other cheek.” Having compassion- even when others have hurt or wronged you- is one of the first steps to true freedom. Sure, sometimes it feels good to hold onto bitterness, anger, or resentment- but who is that really hurting?
When you can act with love, your entire life turns around. I’m not saying the other party will reciprocate the same kindness, but that doesn’t matter. This is about setting you free.
However, I am confident that person will remember your kindness.
And maybe, just maybe, they will even follow your example one day. 💞
