Respect

When life throws us a curve ball and we are stuck in a situation, we always have a choice in what we say and how we react.  The situation is stressful for those directly involved and for those indirectly involved. 

Choose your words to be as kind as possible without allowing yourself to be trampled on.  When you speak and act with respect to other's plans you will get along a lot longer than when you barge in and try to take control of a situation by changing it to suit what you personally want. 

A sign of a true mature person is one who can be accommodating while respecting others even in the worst of circumstances. This is very difficult to do and needs a lot of prayer and focus to achieve. 

You can choose to be respectful of others while protecting your interests. Pray for peace and wisdom and I will continue to pray for you as well.
