Plant the Right Seeds

Filed under: Relationships — Larry James @ 7:00 am

heartseedsAlways remember. . . you reap what you sow. You don’t plant tomatoes and expect corn to grow. Likewise, you don’t sow seeds of bitterness, resentment, anger, etc., and expect your relationship to thrive. Seeds of doubt clutter up your relationship garden.

When you plant corn, if it does not grow well, don’t blame the corn. Look for reasons it is not doing well. When you find the reasons, (and you may have to dig deep for them), take action and do what needs to be done.

The same goes for planting good thoughts about your relationship. They will never grow unless nurtured and nourished with Love, understanding, acceptance, and forgiveness. Although blaming has no redeeming value, if you must place blame, you will be wise to accept responsibility and know that the blame usually goes to the person looking back at you in the mirror.
