“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”
A woman I know has a terrible disposition. She often wears a scowl on her face and her body language screams, “Get Away From Me!” People are afraid to talk to her or ask her a question in fear that she will respond sarcastically. She is an unhappy and unloved soul.
This woman is trapped in a cycle of sadness that she cannot break. It moves round and round, never creating the happiness she so desperately needs. She is lonely and fearful, yet does not know how to reach out to others.
I want to shout at this woman and recite what Mother Teresa lived, “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” I yearn for this woman to know that if she would only love, smile, and reach out, people would flock to her. My desire is for her realize that her negative aura only produces negative reactions.
For now, I will just pray for her and love her. I will smile when she scowls and laugh when she is sarcastic. Finally, when she leaves me, she will leave happier. Peace.
