It is easy to fall into gossip and judgement. I took the decision to stay far away from negative critics not only as a healthy lifestyle habit, but also as a way of raising my children.
Kids watch us closely, our behavior and our judgement of life and others, positive or negative.
It requires courage to stay in love and patience, instead of gossiping and complaining. However, it is deeply satisfying to have open-minded children, full of compassion for others. This is the best reward for years of effort.
