It is easy to raise our voices and complain when we encounter someone else’s negativity. This disturbs our own inner calm and we become caught up with that negativity, When thrown off balance in this way, we are unable to give the other person the support he or she needs.
When someone is doing something wrong, I need to see what I can do to help that person, There is surely something I can contribute toward the growth of each and every human being. When I focus on how best is it to offer my help, I do not become caught up with negativity and I can transform the situation into one that benefits us both.
