If I destroy you, I destroy myself. If I honor you, I honor myself.
– Hunbatz Men, Mayan
This quote reminds me that the way I treat others is the greatest indication of how I really feel about myself. When I am judgmental and critical of others, I am not accepting of myself. When I am open and loving, I am more connected with myself and my Higher Power. This works in the other way also, when others behave in an unkind manner towards me, I remember that they are really being unkind to themselves. This helps me to detach with love and still set my boundaries.
