You are GOOD.
What do you do when someone does something that hurts you? Do you retaliate in the same coin and sometimes hurt them more than you were, by them? Or do you shy away and spend time in isolation, perhaps even crying about the situation?

I recently stumbled upon a beautiful piece that speaks about an African Tribe. When someone does something hurtful and wrong, they take the person to the center of town, and the entire tribe comes and surrounds him. For two days they’ll tell the man every good thing he has ever done. The tribe believes that every human being comes into the world as GOOD, each of us desiring safety, love, peace, happiness.
But sometimes in the pursuit of those things people make mistakes. The community sees misdeeds as a cry for help. They band together for the sake of their fellow man to hold him up, to reconnect him with his true Nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth from which he’d temporarily been disconnected: “I AM GOOD”.

Isn't that a fantastic message? All of us have the capacity to do good things and bad things. All of us can do the right things, and also, at the same time, make mistakes. But here is the deal: one bad thing, one mistake or one wrong thing does not make us inherently bad. So reflect on yourself and think about the good that you have done every time you feel inclined to be rude, or to hurt someone, or to say something mean that you can't take back.
