When you are in a situation, I cannot just tell you to have courage but to also be kind.
In other words your tone, attitude in an argument is essential that those traits be positive to have the argument less fueled.
Of course I grabbed this quote from the ‘Cinderella’ movie, and she would be a perfect example on having courage but also kindness, hence why they repeat that phrase multiple times in the movie!…
but her being mistreated for so long, always putting on a brave face and doing the right thing every time is key to the end of the story: she marries the prince and becomes more blessed at the end, and thats when her courage and kindness brought her the highest honor.
I am not saying it is easy, I am referencing a fairytale story here, but shouldn’t we take the examples that will teach us good character?
There are hard situations out there and this would be a practice you would have to build up for yourself.
You can think of examples in your head, asking: If this person said this to me, how would I respond?
There is no shame in saying I have done this before, in front of the mirror, and I tried responding to my mean question but it took me a few tries before I was satisfied.
I would not want to be standing in front of someone and freeze because I am not sure of how to answer.
I can be very slow when it comes to people saying a mean thing to me, and me not thinking it was mean because I would not think they could do such a thing to begin with. . . . . .-_-
Belief is the salt you add in your dish, if you don’t put that in, your dish will taste bland, put that salt, believe in yourself.
