2. Let yourself be guided by love
Often in arguments, we fall into patterns of defensiveness that we mistakenly believe protect us, but they never do. Only love protects us and holds us in truth. We must come from love, not from fear. When we come from love, we unify. When we don’t, we divide. So, check yourself before you express yourself: Are you coming from love? Is what you’re about to say going to unify or divide? Yes, you really are this empowered—it is completely up to you.
