What Is The Kindest Thing You Could Do For Other People Today?
If you were to list ten of the most important things you are pursuing in life, what would be on that list?
Could you come up with 10 things? Is that too many? Too few? Could you put the things in order of priority? If not, why not?
Now ask yourself: How many of those things am I working toward most days? If not, why not?
What is the kindest thing you could do for other people today?
What is the kindest thing you could do for a specific person you know?
How often do you ask yourself those kinds of questions?
Do you ever ask yourself: What am I doing to make my future romantic love life better? Yes? Well, then would it not closely follow to ask yourself what you might do to improve your future sex life? Has that question become moot? Is that question no longer of interest?
In general, if you’re not asking a question, then you’re probably also not working to answer it. You’re also probably not doing much toward that purpose.
Thought of the day:
One of the most difficult and ironic things you may learn is this: Sometimes the most loving thing you can do for another person is to help them achieve their desired self-autonomy, freedom, and independence – socially, financially, or conceptually. Sometimes this may mean facilitating their departure from being a part of your life.
