Holding on to anger and resentment is like drinking
poison and expecting the other person to die. -- Anonymous
This quote rings so very true, especially in our family units -- with the people we see every day. It is easy to ignore little irritations and misunderstandings, or sweep them under the rug in our family units – that is until someone leaves the cap off of the toothpaste, and is met with a maelstrom of anger and argument, that seems to come out of nowhere.
Misunderstandings and hurt feelings that go unaddressed snowball into major conflicts and relationship breakdowns.
Getting into right relationship with ourselves first, means that we take responsibility for our feelings, allow ourselves to feel what we feel, and learn to share our truths, from a place of peace and understanding.
So ask yourself, are you honoring your truth in your relationships, or are you avoiding it? Does the idea of conflict throw you into a tailspin, so you suppress your feelings rather than express them?
If you've answered yes to any of these questions, then join my upcoming free series: 5 Days of Forgiveness, Creating Magic and Miracles in Your Relationships.

You may be thinking, that sounds great, but what if the other person is not willing to listen, or to negotiate with me? Don't worry, we'll cover that too.
