We never really like to think about how our actions affect others. We tend to think that in most situations we are calm, cool, collected and right! We are, after all; human!
In my last reflection, I talked about how to detach from the Judas’s in our lives from the perspective of how these relationships affected us.
Today, we will reflect on how our behaviors may be Judas’s for someone else. I would like to point out, that these types of relationships offer something for each person involved. So the relationships that we feel are disordered are also cause for disorder in the other person’s life too.
