Our Reverend Fr. Jose Philip (Principal- St. Xavier’s School, Raj Niwas Marg, Delhi) shared this poem with me
Don’t speak if it’s not kind; speak only words of kindness.
Don’t see everyone’s flaws; look for the good in people.
Don’t listen to everything you’re told about others; not everything is the truth.
Be careful placing judgment upon someone, for you are unaware of the battles they are fighting.Instead, pay closer attention – figure out why they live the way they do.
Every person in this life has something to teach you, and as soon as you accept this you open yourself to truly listening and learning.
