At times we’ll face attacks on our person,
Character and morals, of this I’m certain,
Often we fear what we don’t understand,
No awareness is sought, we just reprimand.
But if someone is doing wrong in your eyes,
Find the root motivation, that’s hidden behind,
You can still love someone, when you don’t like them,
Find their humanity, then help to revive them.

There is much that can be said about forgiveness, but more than that, about our chosen response to someone else’s wrong doing. I mean, how do we show someone the error of their ways, or understand why it happened, by being just as barbaric or bitter towards others as they seem to be to us?
We humans can be so quick to judge, pretending that we instantly know the reasons behind what happens around us, or to us… but how could we possibly know such things, if we haven’t sought to understand the perspective or pain of those who have committed these acts!
There may be psychological (or other) factors influencing them, that we hadn’t even considered, such as bipolar disorder or autism, which both affect the way the brain presents and processes information; childhood trauma; hormone imbalances; societal alienation; abuse; bullying; oppression; and many other possibilities.
Love and empathy are potent tools that have the power to bring us all together, heal deep wounds, and make life so much more rewarding for everyone. However, we cannot hope to achieve these things, if we are not investing in them, or showing others their power in healing, uniting and elevating us.
Love and Respect always,
