It's so important to recognize in our lives the patterns of learned behaviors, familial & social.
Step 1: is awareness. Step 2: we embrace the many how's to change those patterns beginning with ourselves, minute by minute and ultimately working to rise above the unhealthy, hurtful behaviors that we have adopted, share and pass on through our examples. Step 3: ACT not REACT. Practice treating others the way you want to be treated, when you aren't sure what to do, look to someone you admire who handles situations in a respectable way and CHOOSE their example..
"Thus, be a good example at all times, in all things and in all places". It's a good start everyday is a new start; and at the end of each day it is a win-win!
-It's not just the weapon of the future, it is the future and more importantly, IT is your contribution.
