I don’t care enough about you to give you my cruelty. And make no mistake, you have to care entirely too much about something or someone to be cruel to them. Even if it comes naturally. Words come to me naturally but I still have to put thought into their order and design.
We always have a choice. Even if you are driven by the spite and anger, there is a moment just before your rage consumes you. Anyone who is not a psychopath has this moment. In this moment, you have a choice. You can falter to your superficial, insecure, rageful whims or you can pull back. You can pull back and find compassion for someone else and strength within your self. You can take that moment and choose to grow.
What we want and what we get do not always sync. How we respond to those let downs will create an atmosphere for creating more opportunities to get that synchronization to connect.
Choose to be nicer. Everything you want depends on it.
