When confronted with a difficult situation, our minds have a marvelous way of going into survival mode to protect us. We just want to get through it without drowning, and we may unconsciously push someone else down in order to save ourselves.
We sometimes retaliate without considering the other person, and this might ruin something special. That is why you should always listen before speaking, not every situation is life or death, so remember to be considerate. We must also keep in mind that the other person has no idea what we are going through, and the same is true the other way around.
As a result, give people the benefit of the doubt. And while talking from a place of hurt is acceptable but letting your ego take over is not. Our suffering does not necessitate being insensitive to the other person in order to communicate with them. So, when you don’t know what to do next or how to express your sadness, make the conscious decision to be humble. And when you’re in doubt, be KIND.
