1. Let them be themselves and run their lives. You worry about your own.

  3. Continually and regularly point out to them their brilliance; they don’t see it clearly and they don’t know its immensity.

  5. Be yourself, so that they receive the gift of a real relationship and of the real you.

  7. Do your own internal work so that you don’t take our fear, resentment, or stress on those around you.

  9. Know that their mental and emotional landscape is very different from yours. Listen hard, patiently and openly to hear about what is true for them. Remember that you don’t have understand it or make sense of it to respect or accept it.

  11. Give of yourself, but never sacrifice or compromise yourself.

  13. Remember that everyone you encounter was created by divine intelligence and has an important role to play in the universe. If you truly know that, you will stay respectful, humble, honest and kind.

  15. If you want to keep growing emotionally and spiritually for the rest of your life, accept this as your mantra and try to live as if it were true: everything that I experience from another human being is either love, or a call for love.
