Call Me by My True Names

 One of the phrases that helps me find and share compassion with everyone is, "we are all tall children." I also remember, Hurt people, hurt people. Healed people, heal people. This means we have the choice to view everyone as a child, not in a demeaning way, but in a way that we can see their innocence, their hurt, their heart and we can offer kindness and compassion. No one is born hurting others, it is learned through pain. Those who hurt us are often unaware of how deep their actions affect us. Compassion and kindness go a long way in building a bridge between us. Hugs from my heart to yours.
