- One of best things I ever heard was: "You might not think you can go the whole way, but you can always put one foot in front of the other."
- They may be sloppy or tidy, work differently than you want, or be annoying at times, & probably we are all annoying sometimes. BUT to be successful we must:
- 1) look for the good & keep it mostly in mind. Might be good to say 20+ positive things before every negative, & wait some days & pray, before the negative.
- 2) find a practical way to work together (requires forgiveness and sometimes giving in, especially to your senior companion, but not to sin)
- 3) forgive, service, be/pray for patience, sacrifice etc.
- 4) praying for Charity, and Never Giving Up !
- To change them might be impossible, so one just tries to set a good example, do right, adapt to their style at times, ALWAYS obey the rules, tell...
- ...tell leaders if a problem can't be worked out, but NEVER give up, give out, or break the rules. Sometimes we just have to lump it. it's OK.
- We are not usually competent to judge them as a person (though we do have to decide whom to trust, and for what).
- Every person is a beautiful person! (including you! )
- Look for the good, compliment it, and learn from them. They know things you don't. You can have a great experience if you humble yourself and work at it.
- When something goes wrong or you're upset, you could think thoughts like these
- Learn that you can do hard things. Sometimes you have to break something into steps (including learning), smaller steps, etc.
- Growth/MM: social ("...and man")
