It's day seven of the Love Challenge, and LOVE DOESN'T DEMAND!
You can't always get your own way. Those who know true love seek to find common ground, harmony, and peace. Love doesn't demand it's own way, which is exactly why relentlessly wanting "your way" time and time again will lead to arguments, tension, and unhealthy relationships. COMPROMISE. COMPROMISE. COMPROMISE.
My two little Presidents CONSTANTLY want their own way. "I want this...I wanna do it...I don't want to eat that..." And the list goes on. At this point, my boys know that in MY house, they will follow MY rules, but every now and then, I let them have their own way just to prove to them that their way was not the best way. We lean from our lived experiences, right?
Learn to have some humility like we discussed during the challenge last week. Humble yourself and look for appropriate common-ground sometimes. Besides, OUR way isn't always the RIGHT way anyhow. Live isn't self seeking; IT'S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT YOU! Practice makes perfect. Work on it now so you can perfect it over time. I'm with you all the way!!!
More for day eight of the challenge tomorrow!!!
