Thoughts about unkind people
It took me some time not to react when people were unkind or hurtful. It took practice not to take others' insensitive comments personally. It also took deep thought to see the truth that these actions weren’t about me, but it was the other’s mistaken sense that made them lash out and act improper.
So, when the people you are dealing with seem difficult and unpleasant, remember that it’s not about you, but about them and their mental pains. Their view of things, their emotional dispositions and opinions.
The “higher” thought to hold in mind is, that they are by nature as good and perfect as you are. They, however, have lost their true character just for the time being. Keep that thought, not as a judgment but with love, and do not waver. Soon they will respond to this truth and your loving attitude.
“You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
