You will not only stay out of trouble by making harmony and ease in the home your priority. Toxic people will stay away from you – because they don’t know what to do with someone so constructive – and their bullshit will not reach you at all.
The benefits from that decision will be monumental. Even a plain pledge to take better care of yourself so you can be more lighthearted, more fun and more patient with your loved ones will make a huge difference: you will feel content, alive, sane and connected.
Everyone has a family. Chosen or given. If you can’t start with them for grave personal reasons, bring happiness to those you can.
We all feel a need to belong and to give meaning to our lives. Both belonging and meaning derives from our relationships, not by how we define them or consume them, but by what we give to them.
