“When people speak to you in anger, saying unkind or untrue things, it is best to learn to forgive them. It is wise to learn not to respond to the negativity or fear in others. Keep your heart open and come from that loving, compassionate, and higher view. There are many who would speak of hard times, who blame others, and create bad feelings through their words and their anger. Learn not to respond with anger but to focus instead on other things.
Do not take offense, for offense taken is as bad as offense given. When you take offense, you contribute to negative energy, and thus there is negative energy around you that can attract more of the same. When you get offended, you close down your heart and thus turn away from your connection to your soul. Do not get offended when people speak from anger or fear, for it is coming from a lesser self. Learn to focus on their greater selves, for whatever you focus on and pay attention to is what you draw out in the people around you.”
Sanaya Roman, in “Personal Power through Awareness”
