From “The Purple Flower”:
“Don’t break a soul and then tell it to be happy.
Don’t see the worst in a person and expect them to see the best in you.
Don’t judge people and expect them to stand by your side.
Don’t play with fire and expect to stay perfectly safe.
Life is about giving and taking.
You cannot expect to give bad and receive good.
You cannot expect to give hate and receive love.
So if you want to see positive change in your life, you need to be that change itself.”
This resonated with me, and I hope it will with some of you, also.
