Understanding pain!


So… following on from Sunday, the neighbor who hit my car came to see me today… he was less stressed and much more calm… more importantly he was less traumatised too.

he was grateful of the compassion shown and had committed to fixing the vehicle… but what made me feel peace was his gratitude, because by showing him compassion he’s not fallen in a heap and he’s kept his job and committed to getting help too. I feel that from the moment of impact and trauma has come good and possibly for healing for him. His words to me for showing kindness instead of anger towards him have shown me that I was right to take this path with him…

for me, I feel peace, I feel a little better about myself too, I sat for a moment before writing this and just felt the energy in my in my body, it feels good to know I helped someone find a little light in the middle of their darkness and especially just before Christmas…

a car can be fixed, a life where understanding his pain and knowing it can be removed or reduced and understood, that’s priceless 🙏🏼💕 Pete ~ the motive

  1. Hey Pete, good to see some people giving out kindness and love this Christmas season. So many would have reacted in anger. What a great message to show compassion and forgiveness to someone having a bad day, even if they caused you damage and pain. We need more of that in this world.
