One of the things that I am most grateful for is my ever-growing capacity to handle my own emotions and other people’s emotions with grace and compassion.  There was a time when people were SO disappointing to me.  I used to feel so bothered by people – to the point where I was in a near constant state of agitation or disappointment.

I made a conscious decision to increase my capacity to have compassion for others which naturally increased my self-compassion.  Compassion is loving understanding which is an expression of Love.  Love is the healer of the mind that labors in vain.

For me, it has been so gratifying to be able to develop a capacity to have more compassion and to be more generous.  Being generous with kindness, compassion, and patience has naturally healed my self-esteem.

As A Course in Miracles teaches us, “to have, give all to all.”  When we have Love and extend it to others, we are lifted by the Love into a higher vibrational life of miracles.

One of the early steps for me was to consciously increase my ability to be patient.  Practicing patience really did help me to Love myself more.  Catch this:  I didn’t realize it, but allowing myself to be upset, worried, angry, ashamed, or blaming was inflaming my heart and mind.  It was generating destruction and suffering – and that simply wasn’t being kind to myself.

The more I learned to be compassionate with others, the more I had the ability to be compassionate with myself.  This was deeply healing to me.

Before, when I flew off the handle at every little thing, deep down, I felt like an idiot.  I judged myself intensely for being so intensely judgmental.  Ugh.  It was the part of my life that I lived on the hamster wheel of non-stop judging.

Fortunately, I did eventually learn from my pain and suffering.  I’m glad that part of my life is over and now I can share the benefits of my learning with everyone.

If handling emotions and emotional intensity are challenging to you, I encourage you to make the decision to have the goal to be unbotherable.  Decide that you will practice developing the capacity and imagining yourself already there.  Here’s where you can give the Spirit the heavy lifting.

Developing capacity to Love, to be patient and kind, improves the quality of every minute of your day.  It is completely worthwhile.  Spirit will guide and carry you, if you’d really like to.  Now is the time of our awakening.  We’re simply saying, “Yes,” and being willing.

If you’re finding what I’m sharing to be helpful, won’t you please share at Facebook and twitter to let others know?  Thank you!
