Most people don’t do things intentionally to hurt us or disappoint us…

I have learned that most people don’t do things intentionally to hurt us or disappoint us, and often have no idea they are. We all do what we are capable of… with our “stuff”… what we “inherited”, have experienced… we interpret and react the way we know how… often the only way we know… we often blame, push people away, reject them, and say hurtful things when we feel hurt or simply can’t handle something. Sometimes we aren’t capable of thinking of the consequences or what is happening to another. And although I believe in taking full responsibility for what I do, some people just aren’t able to. In healing myself, fixing what was broken in me, not blaming everything outside of me, and accepting I can only complete and fulfill myself, I found unconditional love. But unconditional love does not mean self sacrifice, martyrdom, or not caring of yourself first. It means understanding others in compassion and with empathy, in love, and often from a distance… © Jodi Healy
