Fall into the embrace of life! Living your life in that respect allows you to live more harmoniously hand and hand with all humanity, because now you don't have to change anyone. It's not your responsibility to change your cranky boss. It is not your responsibility to change anybody for any reason under the sun. Now you can have loving allowance truly for them to be who they are in any given moment, feeling what they feel inside of their heart and that's it; there's nothing wrong with it! If your boss wants to be cranky, let your boss be cranky! Don't take it all so personally! It's not about you. What people say to you, my dear friends, tells you more about them than it does about you. It allows you to look at them.
Let the world judge you, let them see you and give you their honest echo. Let them be with you on their terms. If they like you they like you, if they don't they don't. It has nothing to do with whether or not you are a loveable being. You are! So are they! It's just that, for the time being, it's not necessarily the best dance, not the best partner, perhaps it's not where you need to be. Or perhaps by standing in your truth and simply being loving, watching the person in front of you throw a fit, a tantrum about life, etc. (realizing that, truly, it's not so much about you as it is about them), then, my dear friends, you become the one who is simply serving life with love; you're giving acknowledgment; you're allowing for people to be who they are.
Let somebody throw a fit long enough, and we assure you they'll stop eventually. If they can't get you riled up on their behalf, then what's the point for them to continue? They won't do it. They can't. They'll lose steam. It's the best way to put out any fire. Just to say, "I understand. I hear you, my goodness gracious! You are upset. That's true. I can see that's really what you are feeling now." And giving this sort of loving allowance for them to be, suddenly they can see who they are because now they can't blame you, they can't put the blame upon you for their behavior, for the way that they are feeling. They can't get you riled, they can't get you upset, they can't get you to fight back, you just sit and remain loving and wait, and all of a sudden they will talk themselves out of their upset.
