See The Best in Others
- 2014 21 Apr
It is easy to find fault with others. Just a few minutes with family or friends is often enough to see their weaknesses. They jump out at you. Perhaps one is too talkative while another bothers you with their opinions. Perhaps their boundaries are poor and they are quick to speak into your life. Understand that if you’re looking for someone perfect to hang out with, you will be waiting an awfully long time—forever. No one is perfect, not even you. Instead of waiting for perfection, why not practice seeing the best in others. Laugh at their quirks and remind yourself that you have them too and certainly want them to be kind in how they regard you.
