Guess what?! I have a surprise for you; you do not have to tolerate or condone negative behavior. Yes, it can be a positive thing to look at the other person’s perspective, however, you need not put up with name calling, mental, emotional or physical attacks.
As always you have a choice. You can choose to stay in an ‘attempt’ to change a person, but that will most likely never happen. Be it from a lover, friend or acquaintance; change starts from within and you may never be that catalyst. Be loving to yourself first and the rest will follow. ~ Creator
