Today I can honor my decisions without being defensive because I respect my right to make the best decisions I can. Even when others are not happy with those decisions, I can behave in a way that feels good for me. Others have the right to disagree, to feel differently, to be disappointed, to feel differently, to be disappointed. I can respect that right and still stick to my principles.
Relationships are complicated because people are complicated. We each our own ideas, valued, and hopes, and they can't always coincide with the desires of those we love. Disagreements can be healthy and enlightening if we view them as a way to develop and deepen our relationships. Kindness and respect for everyone concerned will go a long way towards making this possible.
Today I will try to view every conflict as an opportunity to heal. I will honor myself by responding with courtesy.
"The highest form of wisdom is kindness." The Talmud
