All around us rage the storms—of people, circumstances, and more. Sometimes, to make it far more complicated, the storms are blowing while we’re drowning in the middle of the ocean.
Often we can’t control the storms, but we can always choose to become an island of calm—an island on which we can stand with stability in the tempest. Love gives us that power.
Even better, we can invite other people to join us, and thus we share our calm with the world. You can’t always save people or resolve their fear and anger, but you can give them a place to calmly stand in the waves. Love doesn't always give you the results you want, but it works better than everything else.
Learn how to truly love others and give them what they need.
