I just received a brilliant comment on yesterday’s post which I have posted in an edited form. Yes, my friend, you are right. When I say “how sad”, I am spreading sadness. When I ‘blame’ my sadness on the actions of another I am putting myself in opposition to them and becoming their enemy. It is empathy for those who are experiencing pain that causes my pain. And that empathy extends to those on both sides. Happy, joyous people do not hurt others.
I honestly attempt to live my life in peace and joy and happiness and do my best… see the majority of my posts… to help others find those feelings within themselves. Thank you for helping me see myself from another perspective.
