Relationship Tip of the Week

We all remember Mr. Roger’s neighborhood….it was friendly, safe and never hurried. Ever wish your world could be like that?  Every day we have a choice–our world can be pleasant, safe and friendly, even if there are people who want to make it just the opposite. We are the ones who are in control–not our “neighbors.” We can choose how we feel about situations and how we respond to others–regardless of how they act toward us. When we react to others, we are giving away our power and our self-esteem. We are not so fragile that an unkind comment can demolish us. Remember that old childhood chant, “Whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you”? Well, it’s true. When we choose not to react, the person is left with their comment hanging in the air–and others remember them for saying it. Life is too short to allow the negative in. Instead, put your sweater and sneakers on and have a beautiful day.
