Make Your I A Better I

When you have pride in yourself, you will quite normally love others.  I don’t mean romantic love or even brotherly love but love of others as they are, as they exist.  This love of others is demonstrated through natural kindness and willingness to not only forgive, but to help others overcome their trespasses.

Mistakes no longer matter, they are just opportunities for you to contribute to the betterness of the world, of the community and to you own self.  Your I will become a better I when you assist instead of blame.

I am compassionate, I am forgiving, I am loving, I am hopeful and I hope to guide others through both good times, and difficult times.
