That smell you smelled wasn’t an accident. It’s a warning from the Universe that you need to start going with grace. You’ve been more brutal and unforgiving than usual lately and it’s going to start taking its toll on your relationships if you aren’t careful.
Your Guardian Angels have been watching you and it’s become clear to them that you could be a lot more forgiving of the people in your life. Right now, you’re walking around with a lot of resentment towards people and it isn’t helping you. In fact, it’s making your life a lot more difficult than it needs to be.
What you need to do right now is start to become more graceful. That means treating the people around you with more respect and appreciation. You need to appreciate the fact that they are just human and will make mistakes too. You can’t hold them to impossibly high standards.
Approaching Others with Respect
This is one of the most important things you need to learn right now. You need to be the one to start the respect trend. If you keep on thinking that others need to treat you with respect before you treat them with respect you’re going to run into trouble with the Universe.
You need to be the bigger person and respect others even if they disrespect you. That isn’t always easy, but it needs to be done. You need to be respectful of them even if they cross your boundaries. It’s no use fighting fire with fire right now. You need to be the one that subdues the situation and keeps things calm.
Of course, you don’t need to keep the person that keeps on disrespecting you in your life. But let them down gently. Starting a fight with someone is the opposite of showing them respect. So, make sure that whatever you decide to do is done in a nice way. The smell was a warning that if you don’t start treating people with more respect, you’re going to have quite a few tough lessons come your way.
Allowing Others to Make Mistakes
People make mistakes. You need to accept that about yourself and others. This is especially true in new relationships. When you’re getting to know someone, you need to allow them to make mistakes. That counts for any type of relationship. Including romantic relationships, friendships and even work relationships.
You’ve been very quick to judge yourself and others. But going with grace means allowing people to make mistakes. There isn’t such a thing as the perfect person. You aren’t perfect and neither are other people. And grace is all about accepting that mistakes happen. Even if the other person has the best intentions, they’re still going to make mistakes.
So, make sure that you don’t jump on your high horse too quickly. Remember that people deserve the benefit of the doubt more often than not. And the more you can forgive them the more you will be able to relate to them on a deeper level. And that’s going to help you to build stronger bonds with people.
Being Humble and Gracious
It all boils down to being humbler and more gracious. You need to remember that. But if you’re struggling to be humbler and more gracious here is an exercise for you to try.
Whenever you find yourself judging someone else try to put yourself in their shoes. Imagine you’re them, living their life and doing things the way they do things. The more you can imagine yourself as that person the more you’ll start to see why they do things in a specific way.
You might need to ask the person why they’re doing things the way they do them. The more insight you have the easier it will be to understand what their motivations are. And once you understand their motivations, you’ll also be more sympathetic towards them.
Again, you don’t have to agree with what they’re doing or even choose to stay in the relationship. But a little understanding goes a long way towards being more graceful. And being more graceful is going to help you manifest better and longer lasting relationships.
