Relationships form a delicate web across the globe. From dolphins and their interactions with each other to the role ants play in keeping the cycles of a rainforest turning, to the big human cities, we are all inter-related.
On a personal level, these relationships exist between members of a family, colleagues in a business and all kinds of social arenas.
So we may as well get along.
When a hurt has been witnessed by a relationship, three options lie available.
We can tear ourselves apart and continue at war with each other. This follows the “eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth” logic. But this just causes more conflict.
Or we can liberate ourselves from this cycle. There are two options branching out of this. We can choose to stay and repair, like with a family member we love dearly.
Or we can choose to walk away.
With any decision, it must be made with a wise heart. At the end of the day, we’re the ones who are left to live with our decisions.
Let’s choose peace. Let’s choose to live in a world with out violence and war.
Let’s choose to embrace the goal of healing our relationships.
