When we speak in a way that is peaceful and composed in the face of adversity, we raise ourselves above that adversity and, more often than people might expect, inspire others to do the same. Not only that, but by continuing to have our words come from a peaceful place, even in the face of others' anger or refusal to agree with us, we allow ourselves to be truly helpful to others and, as such, truly loving. By moving away from peacefulness, by choosing to communicate by shouting or insulting to get our points across, we move away from our ability to be truly loving, and are more likely to inspire a perpetuation of conflict and hurtfulness. Specifically, when we are called to communicate to someone that we don't agree with them, I've found that reminding them that their right to make their own choices in life is fully acknowledged and appreciated is always a helpful and compassionate thing to include at the start of the message, because chances are that the listener feels personally insulted by the speaker's disagreement. Now, the listener is encouraged to see the speaker's disagreement not as something to be feared or taken personally, but as a natural occurrence of life, as well as an opportunity for both people to become better educated on what is true about one another, which is always beneficial to one's life. Again, if one can not only accomplish all of that, but do so in a calm and loving way, even against the adversities of anger and resentment, then one has the potential to be truly inspiring to others, as they will become an example of wisdom, love, and the strength of will for all to live by.
