Best advice: Treat everyone like the way you would treat your best friend. Treat everyone with the same respect, love, protection, and kindness that you would treat your best friend because everyone’s heart is fragile. It is amazing how much having a person smile at you on the hallway can change your day. However, it is hard to remember that a rude comment can also change a persons outlook on the day.
Below are the effects of positivity and negativity on the heart.
Here is a paper heart. This heart is clean and untouched.
But hurtful comments and actions cause the heart to crumble. The heart is no longer clean and untouched.
As time continues, if the heart continues to receive negativity it will become small to the point where you do not recognize it is a heart.
Slowly but surely the heart can recover. Love and positive actions help to mend the shriveled heart.
However, the heart will never be the same again. The heart can forgive, but the heart can never get rid of its scars. The heart is no longer clean and untouched.
It is important to remember that you need to treat other peoples hearts as well as your own with care. Every action, word, intention, and deed can change the shape of a persons heart. For some actions, words, intentions, and deeds sorry is not enough. Be careful of how you choose to treat others.
“Before you speak ask yourself: Is it kind, is it necessary, is it true, does it improve upon the silence?” -Shirdi Sai Baba
