What is the quality of your intent?

"Certain people have a way of saying things that shake us at the core.  Even when the words do not seem harsh or offensive, the impact is shattering.  What we could be experiencing is the intent behind the words.  When we intend to do good, we do.  When we intend to do harm, it happens.  What each of us must come to realize is that our intent always comes through.  We cannot sugarcoat the feelings in our heart of hearts. The emotion is the energy that motivates.  We cannot ignore what we really want to create. What we owe to ourselves and everyone around is to examine THE REASONS of our true intent."
-Thurgood marshall

Also this:

"I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me....All I ask is that you respect me as a human being."
-Jackie Robinson

Sometimes I can't fathom others' actions.  I often think...seriously?! Who acts that way?!?! But yet I see it almost every day.  I am lucky to have a lovely life where I do not need to pick apart other peoples' every move in order to validate myself.  I have love and a team of supporters who are truly on my team and that is enough.  I do not need to gossip about every tom dick and harry that aren't around at the time in order to make myself feel better.  And I'm okay with that.  I just feel bad for those who need to do this to make themselves feel better.  I wish they had the support and love that I have so they didn't need to get validation in such a negative way. 

Here's to wishing these people get some love so they can stop hurting others.
