A candle is not diminished by giving another candlelight. – Earl Nightingale
We are quick to see our own struggles and hope to be treated with compassion and care.
We are able to acknowledge that we might not get everything right, but we are trying our best…
We desperately want the next person to be gentle and treat us with kindness.
But, it seems we are unable to see that the next person is just like us.
We demand perfection, we are quick to anger, we criticise their shortcomings and we forget that like us, they are trying their best.
Perhaps if we start to see the next person as an extension of ourselves, we will be able to give them the grace and support that we would like someone to give us.
“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the single candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
Help build someone.
Light someone’s candle today.
