“If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and then make a change.” – Michael Jackson
“It’s not you, it’s me.” It’s a cliche line used when breaking up with someone to take the onus for the end of the relationship. It’s also something I’m trying to live by every day.
“It’s not you”, the man who cuts me off in traffic–
“It’s me”, the one who has to let go of anger that surfaces.
“It’s not you”, child who challenges my authority or brings me to my knees in exhaustion–
“it’s me”, a parent who is learning what it means to love unconditionally.
There is a proverb that says “as water reflects a face, so a man’s heart reflects the man.” What kind of reflection do you see today?
