You don't have to like everyone...

Oh my gosh... have you ever felt really bad about not liking someone or their personality? Or even worse, felt badly because someone didn't like you? I hear people all the time trying to justify why they don't like a person, trying to convince themselves that they are not bad people for disliking another human. It is perfectly natural and normal to dislike some people. Maybe someone gossips at the office and you don't want to hear it, or someone is constantly rude and burps in the lunchroom; you don't have to like everyone! You should however be respectful of other humans and treat them kindly. Just because you don't like someone doesn't mean you should insult them, call them names or hurt their feelings. We don't have to get along with everyone, but we do have to maintain civility. Set a good example by living with integrity and treating everyone with kindness and compassion, even those you don't like. Today, acknowledge that your feelings are valid, that you are not a bad person for disliking someone, treat everyone with kindness, take a deep breath and Live Inspired Now!
