Kind Words Taste Better
You don't have to be disagreeable when you disagree - Eckhart Tolle
We sometimes have different views. Different experiences lead us to having different perceptions and then there is the ego! the part of us that tells us to hang on to our beliefs no matter what and define ourselves by them even if they are harming us or separating us from our brothers and sisters and most importantlyour happiness.
All that to say, we may not always share the same opinion or views. But golly, can we just disagree in a kind way? Why is that so hard? Well most times its when the feeling stems from the ego and we want to attack or defend a position. One can be extremely passionate in one's opinion and still be kind
Words, they cannot be taken back, once they leave it's source all that can follow is an apology. When they are laced with kindness chances are they taste better if you have to eat them.
So, be kind when you have a difference of opinion and want to express it to the someone else. Give it how you would want to receive it!
This is also a gentle (and kind) reminder to myself
