Relating to Others

Let us always love the best in others—and never fear their worst. ~ AA World Services Inc. As Bill Sees It. A.A. World Services, Inc.. Kindle Edition.

Are you confident enough
in your own skin to follow
this advice of Bill W.?
Loving the best in others
is easy. But “never fear their worst.”
may be a terrifying idea.
Are you that comfortable
in your own skin?
Do you believe you can
never fear the worst
of people you know or meet?
I find it easier to pair the wisdom
that all that is not love is fear
with the admonition as to their fear.
Only by responding to fear with love
can we break the escalating anger
that so threatens our world!
Let us always love the best in others—
and never fear their worst.
