To feel understood, do your best to understand others. To feel connected, work to connect others. To feel less lonely, help others see that they are not alone.
Take your pick. What’s your gripe. To be your own friend, use the stage around you to discover what to do with your needs. Doing things for others starts with Me, motivated by Me and it ends satisfying and rewarding Me. That’s the key to service.
Today is my birthday by the way. I’m off to spend the day with my wonderful kids who don’t understand me, who are often self-absorbed, argumentative and feel misunderstood. I’m going to spend the day with them for Me though. I’m going to because I am going to get a lot out of it.
I’m not going to blame them for anything today if I can.
Happy Birthday to me.
hugs to you all.
