Violence is never the answer
Be the type of person who leaves a mark, not a scar. So goes the quote of an unknown source. People who leave emotional and physical scars just don’t get it. Violence and aggression lead to nothing but dead ends and just begets more negativity and violence. This past week is just a case in point. Love, trust, collaboration, empathy, and compassion breed creativity and inspiration. Either direction will leave an imprint in your memory for a long time, but only the positive one will be inspiring and long term sustainable.
Positive non-violent people leave a mark that will stay with us forever because they lift us up. Scars are just a vivid reminder of bad experiences and what not to do in the future.
Which one do you like better? How can you leave more positive mark with people? The most effective difference we can make is with ourselves – let’s not wait for others to go first.
