Say Goodbye

David Crenshaw is a clinical psychologist and a guru in the areas of play and pet therapy.  He is brilliant and I have learned so much from his words of wisdom and clinical advice on various topics.  Recently he posted this to his Facebook....

"Say goodbye to anyone who diminishes you.
Say arrivederci to anyone who punctures your spirit.
Say adios to anyone who makes you feel "less than".
Say au revoir to anyone who disrespects your dignity.
Those who treat you in such ways are not worthy of you.
Say hello, ciao, hola, bonjour to a person who dignifies your presence."

While this is often easier said than done, it is important to adopt this mindset so that we can be an example of healthy living to those around us, especially children learning to create healthy relationships.  Life is too short to not be surrounded by love.
