Want to predict the future? You can do it through your actions. There were a few years where I hung around with people who always wondered what my problem is. The problem is–they didn’t take responsibility for their own actions. They refused to ask what THEY had done that might have triggered my responses. The thing is, they were mean, disrespectful, dishonest, unreliable, untrustworthy, unkind. No wonder I didn’t respond well.
I’ll admit, my problem was keeping these people as ‘friends’ for too long. I should have moved on. But I kept putting up with their disrespect. Sometimes I reacted badly. Sometimes I responded in a way they didn’t like. Every single time, they thought the problem was all mine.
Are people reacting badly? Take responsibility for your own poor choices. Want a better life? A better future? Make better choices. Be better. Do better. Be respectful, wise, and kind. Be forgiving, grateful and compassionate. These things will help you produce a future you — and others — love.
