Talk with them, not to them. Be patient and calm.

Love your spouse or partner, if you have one. Be kind and nice and patient with your spouse or partner too. Love them and hug them and see who they really are without trying to make them who you want them to be.

  1. I just love this. Should be a mantra repeated throughout the day to bring us back to a loving perspective.

  2. Colleen's writing sparkles with love and bright ideas. :-)
