There are times dearest ones when it feels as if the whole world is against you. I promise you it is not. Sometimes you will meet people who rub you up the wrong way, who say things that you perceive to be slights or take to be injurious to your person. They are not. See those that throw those verbal slings and arrows merely as Angels deep within the forgetting. They are deep sleepers, unable to see outside of their supposed realities. Does this mean that you should tolerate such attacks? No, I am saying this merely to give a different perspective on your perceived hurt.
You see there is always more to the story, and as Angels it is your job to see beyond the hurt, beyond the attack to the Angel that is hurting beneath. You see often those that deliver the hurtful comments are hurting themselves. They live in a world of fear, of doubt, of self-loathing. A world so real it frightens them. And so they lash out, not because they intend to hurt or cause pain, but because they do not know what else to do. They are stuck, they feel their is no way out of their predicament other than to lash out at others.
So what to do when you are a victim of such abuse, or when you are involved in a conversation or argument that becomes personal and abusive? Well, be true to who you are. Do not tolerate unkindness, do not tolerate that which you feel is unnecessarily harsh. Speak your truth, not in order to return the hurt with hurt, but to say that it is not acceptable to be spoken to, or dealt with in that manner. Do this not out of a desire ‘to be right’ but ‘to be kind’. Sometimes all it takes is an honesty WITH kindness to make someone aware of the hurt they are causing.
Stand up for what you believe in, and DO stand up for yourself. AND always respond with kindness, it is the best way to dampen the fire of rage and anger. To respond with love whilst at the same time making sure that you are being true to yourself matters.
So be true to yourself, be loving to yourself and know that whatever happens we your angels are always with you, loving you and protecting you.
All my love Emmanuel xxxx
