The way you treat others is a direct reflection on the feelings that you have for yourself.
Sometimes we’re more gracious with ourselves than we are with others, but mostly I think, our outer dialogue reflects deeply the inner life that we’ve cultivated.
If we’re constantly critical of others, then it is most likely that we’re deeply critical of ourselves. If we’re kind and gracious to others, then there is a good chance that we live predominantly from a place of grace — that we have learned to be loving and kind to our inner person.
Where are you at in your inner person? Have you honestly cultivated grace and learned to forgiving and gracious with yourself?
It all starts in the dark, messy confines of your broken heart – will you let kindness in?
