When we are the best version of ourselves, and bring to our relationships all the amazing qualities and characteristics we carry, it opens the doors for positive experiences with others.
Empathy is a great thing to exude in every type of relationship. And here’s why:
We do a lot of things God doesn’t like seeing or hearing, yet he never shuts us out because of it. He always forgives, listens, and loves.
It makes sense – the desire to protect yourself – but how do you do that and invest in community as we are called? How do you learn to trust people and protect yourself at the same time?
If I couldn’t hear the truth myself, I needed to talk to someone who could speak it to me.
I challenge you to pick one way and one person, and go make sure they feel important today!
When the people we love are suffering, in whatever form and for whatever reason, it can be hard to know what they need and how to be there for them during hard times.
Without taking some time for my own mental well-being, emotional exhaustion has been known to take a toll on my personal relationships. I have found it vital to take the necessary steps to make sure this doesn’t happen.
In order to continue loving selflessly, we have to make sure we have love to give.
