It Gets Better

1. A specific compassionate loving thing I birthed into the world today: Spoke to my partner about a concern rather than thinking that was just gonna be the way things always are.

2. A specific loving thing someone gave to me today: He not only said he would try to do what I asked, he modeled it for me right away.

3. A not-so-loving thing someone gave to me today: A friend posted a snarky reply to a Facebook comment I’d made.

4. A compassionately loving thing I did in response to the not-so-loving thing today: I ignored him rather than upping the ante.
