If someone treats you in a less than kind manner, please don’t take it personally. Although they may come off as harsh on the exterior, they’re usually going through a rough time internally, and are only projecting their own insecurities on to others as a cry for help.
The thing is though, you are not here to fix anyone…so you have every right to lovingly remove these people from your life until they fully take responsibility of their own actions, and do the inner work necessary to heal themselves.
Anyone truly content from within does not need to be unkind to anyone ever. Our only responsibility is to be at peace within ourselves, and share kindness with the world around us. This is what leading by example truly looks like.
