After embarking on a journey of self-discovery, local author Heidi Stengl Adams, said by following the “Golden Rule,” one could eliminate a lot of the hurts and self-doubt consuming their lives.
“By encouraging and helping people to live with dignity, honour and respect we could get rid of so many hurts in our lives. Could you imagine how tall people would walk if they lived and treated others with dignity, honour and respect.”
Adams said through her book, Living with Dignity, Honour and Respect, she hopes to guide people into making powerful choices, as well as helping them understand how those choices affect more than just themselves.
“To many people these days make choices from a place of defense instead of offence.”
Adams said by giving people the tools to understand and adapt to their lives, perhaps it will turn a hurt into a lesson.
“One thing I have found and it is pretty much universal, is that your biggest hurts in the past, once you figure out and can get past the hurt, is that those hurts can become your biggest lessons in the future.”
Adams said 90 per cent of the people who we think have wronged or hurt us in our lives did not intend to do so, in fact most of the time those are the people who think they are doing what is in your best interest.
