I often get the question, “what can I do to change my relationship with wife/friend/co-worker?” (This usually means – “how can I change the other person?”)
The answer to the first question is really simple: Just take one step.
One small act of kindness.
One gift of a compliment.
One of their favorite candy bars given with a small note of gratitude.
One sacrifice or service.
One blessing in spite of whatever happened.
One step of forgiveness.
One apology with follow through.
Now, this doesn’t mean that things will turn around immediately, but if you take that one small step every day (yes! every day), and do it faithfully, the relationship will change.
And so will you.
