We all have entrenched patterns of behaviour:

How we interact with others;
How we react to criticism;
How we cope with stress;
Ingrained habits, healthy or otherwise.

They are generally learnt from our parents,
teachers or those around us.
But real growth allows far more choices;
We can continue as is or listen to wiser voices?

Patterns of behaviour can be changed
Not always easy but persistence will win!
Not checking the damage we cause is our sin
For it can motivate and empower our growth

Increasing our skills and kindness.
Others get turned off if we react with blindness.
When we integrate much healthier patterns
Life will flow more smoothly, like silky satins!
