Dear one,

I am a natural observer of behaviors. I am drawn to watch how people, animals, even plants react to external stimuli. It was while observing someone I admire greatly respond to negativity on their social media feed that I crafted my own response to negative talk directed at me:

“I’m sorry you’ve been hurt so deeply. I hope you are able to find the healing you need.”

It is said that “hurt people hurt people,” but it is equally true that those of us who have healed our hurt have the ability to help others find their own healing.

Today I ask that you imagine the intense trauma that would lead someone to a lifetime of judging others. Once you can imagine this scenario, it becomes far easier to see the human behind the hurtful behavior. Can’t imagine it right now? That’s ok. Maybe you have your own healing to do.

Never forget that I love you, and that excludes no one.
