Settle Your Own Disputes

Giving and Receiving takes many forms in life.  We give time, money, support and many other efforts to many different people, and by universal law, we receive on some level back in a dynamic exchange.

No matter how good your intentions are, and how hard you try to give your best, sometimes, disputes arise.  Making the time to resolve them is difficult, because it doesn’t feel good to resolve conflict, it re-hashes old wounds and our emotions can get the best of us.  Yesterday I heard a Judge say to a plaintiff and a defendant, after hearing both sides of their case, “If you can settle your own disputes then you can control your own destiny”.  What a powerful statement.  Through making an effort to communicate with those you are in dispute with, to reach a resolution and put the past behind you, you free up energy to move forward, thus achieving more of what you want, rather than being stuck where you don’t want to be.  Take control of your own destiny, and make time to settle your disputes, whatever size they may be, they are holding you back from greener pastures.
