Be grateful to those who refuse your demands. They are your benefactors.

  1. What about those who refuse my gentle requests? How should I feel about them? Maybe just a little peeved?

  2. They are your teachers...
    Same as enemies and difficulties.

  3. Being thankful for hidden blessings is a good thing. We must become so wise today without the time to think today. Love is a good place to start. Great post. I love all that you do. Thank you Marty.

  4. Yes, and many times in a very tiring but wise way! When someone refuses our demands, like a mirror, think about how disgusting a demanding person can be many times! So, it’s a good opportunity for us to try to change and act in a different way! As my grandmother used to say, good manners, soft tone of voice and chicken soup are always welcome!

  5. In that case I refuse this aphorism; or refuse to refuse it; maybe I will do neither instead. Interesting either way...

  6. There is fine line sometimes between selfless and selfish.

  7. I'm one of those grow-up children who want things right here, right now. I thank those who refuse my demands strongly.

    Kisses dear!
