What does it mean to be the bigger person?

Being the bigger person has nothing to do with being a self-righteous prig who goes around feeling superior to those who behave differently.

Being the bigger person has nothing to do with seeing other people, including those who may annoy us, as “small.”

Being the bigger person is not the art of suppressing our feelings and sticking our chest out with pride because of our ability to do an impeccable Dr. Spock impression.

Being the bigger person is about making the choice to live up to our ideals in spite of the forces that may seek to bring us down.

Being the bigger person is about being bigger than the limiting actions and beliefs that hold us back from being faithful to the Truth of who we are.

Being the bigger person is about declining the invitation to participate in those conversations and activities that lead us away from where we truly want to be.

Being the bigger person is about seeing ourselves as people who are better than the challenges we face, broader than the habits we have, and bigger than the resistance that stands between us and our limitless possibilities.

Being the bigger person is about attributing our power to the giant within rather than the Goliaths without.

Being the bigger person is not about what someone else isn’t.

Being the bigger person is about claiming our power to decide who we’re going to be when the world challenges everything we think you are.

That’s today’s two cents.

Cheers,

  1. “Being the bigger person is about attributing our power to the giant within rather than the Goliaths without.” Love this.

    You have a poetic soul, T.K. (Is this your “control freak” showing?) So much better than being
    “out of control.”

    Yes, being the bigger person is what we do for ourselves, not against or in spite of the other person.

    Takes fortitude, patience, the thoughtful pause, and practice, practice, practice. (Repitition is mastery.)

    Regards,
