How many times have we said something to someone we care about, and instead of thinking with our heart, we just let the words come out and we didn't take the time to think about how the other person would feel. We must be supportive, but at the same time we must show compassion. That is what I love about Spark People. I have never ran into anyone that was giving me positive criticism, but was doing it without compassion! We all want the same thing other wise we would not be here! We can't be so quick to judge the shoes that other people have walked in! Life is what we make of it, and we have this one body, and this one moment in time to make positive changes for life! Be that friend that thinks before you comment, that shows compassion when someone is hurting because you could make a difference in that person's life today! Amen!
That is some good advice there ... and if you DO see that they take it wrong, make sure you take the time to explain what you meant instead of what they heard unless it is absolutely impossible! 1596 days ago
