My small adjustment practice is going well with strangers on the road or in the store, but what about family? Those we love but who push our buttons and patience to the limit.
I have a son who really should be an attorney as he has an answer and/or argument for everything. We have had some terrific arguments in the past, long, long arguments!! However, he was home on leave recently and I did not want to spend what little precious time we had together being angry. So, when I could so easily have made a comment (read that, argue) to some of his statements, I choose to not respond. Or better yet, respond in agreement. What a difference! Except for one incident, we were pretty much argument free and had some wonderful times together. Why make a comment when it isn’t going to change anything or anyone. Am I finally growing up?
If today is the last time you saw someone you care about, would you want that memory to be one of anger? Not me. Remember me with love.
