The High Road

You will be misunderstood.

Your point will be lost.

The other person will not be ready to hear what you have to say.

Never assume a full understanding. You’ll be disappointed.

Do prepare for the backlash.

Don’t take it personally.

Don’t lash out in anger.

Do take a break. Go for a walk. Listen to music.

And when you’re ready, take the high road.

I’ve never regretted taking the high road. It says, “I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt.”

They may never come around, but you’ve given the relationship a chance to breath, a chance to mend.

A chance to survive another day.
