Reaction Quotes

Welcome to these Reaction quotes from my many broken heart quotes. I hope these quotes about Reaction are just what you were looking for.

Have we not come to such an impasse in the modern world
that we must love our enemies - or else?

If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.
In other words, you have not truly forgiven that person.
All of this begs the question, how do we forgive?
First, cease lying to yourself and stop telling yourself stories
about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.
If you could forgive all the people in your life
who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!

with the idea of love sees prospective partners

of the one in love with love.
