You can’t make a plant grow by pouring acid on it.

Plants grow when they’re nurtured. They grow when they’re given pure water and sunlight. So do people. No matter how difficult someone is being, the only fix is to love them more. The only way you’ll see a better person show up across from you is if you pour on the love – not toxic criticism, blame, or correction. Love will help them grow. It will help them feel and find the good inside, and turn it outwards – towards the love, just as the plant turns its leaves toward the light.

About TayTruth

I love Truth. I've always loved Truth, God. The goal here, is to express Truth in the most accurate, authentic way possible. This blog is a work in progress. The expression of Truth grows more absolute in proportion to one's understanding. The understanding of Truth expressed here has been shaped mainly by a life-long study of the Bible and the works of Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science. But, as a seeker of Truth, any representation of the Truth that enlightens understanding has been welcome, and there are far too many to enumerate. Gratitude is the order of the day, when thinking of all who have spoken the Truth in whatever form.

    Much food for thought. Thank you.
    May I add– Plants grow when they are nurtured and where they are nurtured.
