Thought these are some beautiful sentiments about breaking the cycle of trauma in our lives:

“Hurt people hurt people.

That’s how pain patterns get passed on, generation after generation after generation.

Break the chain today.

Meet anger with sympathy, contempt with compassion, cruelty with kindness.

Greet grimaces with smiles.

Forgive and forget about finding fault.

Love is the weapon of the future.”

- Yehuda Berg, The Kabbalah Center

This is powerful — it should only be that we can have a complete healing, betterment, and a renewal of peace for all.

One other thing that I heard that was so plain and simple, yet so smart was that:

Our job in this world is to do the most good that we can do!

Thank you to Minna Blumenthal for sharing all this.
