No one is perfect whether it be emotionally, physically or spiritually. Sometimes we watch the way people act or hear the way they speak and we get irritated. Someone doesn't do something our way and we are annoyed. Yet, if we could just remind ourselves a little more that no one is perfect even if we or they are in recovery. We and other people are not always going to do the right thing but if we are tolerant of ourselves and others we can learn compassion and love at its very core.
The saying that we should treat people we want to be treated holds true in every aspect of our lives. We have a responsibility as a human being to try to live this every single day. Treat others with compassion, love and tolerance, even if they don't treat you the same. It will open your mind and your heart in ways you can't imagine!
