I 'm A Peacemaker

    "Love, as a powerful human experience,

    it is devoid of any potency and so it becomes sentimental and anaemic. But then when you have power devoid of love, then it becomes abusive.” Essentially it is the separation of power (in a positive sense) and love that leads to many of the problems we face today. - Sakyong...

    What is peace? Will anyone start a dialog

    with me? I'm only now coming to realize what "peace" is, and I'm told to seek it with everything I have. What is this peace?

    I like repairing broken relationships

    and being the instigator of re-building communications that have been damaged by diffferneces. I can often see both sides and have a knack for getting both to view the others opinions or reflection of the argument. I believe all things can be solved with communication, but its...

    I can't help but try to help people.

    I want others to be able to experience life in a positive way. I wish for everyone to feel inner peace, the world would be a much better place if people just changed their perspectives on life.

    My parents fought a lot

    so I always had to be the peacemaker in my family, I still am. Being raised in a dysfunctional family has made me really despise fighting. It's so pointless and immature and resolves nothing.

    I try my best to make sure everyone feels

    better about the experiences that hurt them the most, I don't like when people suffer. It makes me wonder why I'm willing to help others to find themselves but I don't even know who I really am.....I guess the person I'm supposed to be is a person that is willing to put others...

    I've been a peacemaker within myself lately.

    Negative thoughts used to try to make their way in and take hold, but I don't want to feel bad anymore. I love to feel good. When I have peace, there's peace all around me.

    most people don't know the difference between a

    peace maker and a peace keeper. I am a peace maker. in the midst of chaos i come in and make the situation peaceful, not coming in and trying to please everyone and therefore keeping the peace

    Anyway, how come there are hardly any young

    people that want peace? Are my peers just so stupid they cant see it? Or have they just lost hope? I dont care. I will always aim for peace and do my best to get there.

    I have always been the person to try to calm

    folk's down and get things on an even keel again. I can get riled up and put my foot down too. Those that know me sometimes ask for help. One time I got a call late at night I had a friend go off the deep end. I reasoned for a short while, then took the loaded shotgun away from...

    Most of this probably has to do with the fact

    that I don't handle conflict well and I like to get it over with as soon as possible. I tend to try to shut down arguments before they happen, which can lead to some other problems down the road.

    Can't abide the knee-jerk reaction of hostility.

    It achieves nothing for all concerned!

    When I was younger, people would pick on me,

    but moments later tell me they were only fooling around. I've always been taller and more filled out than most people I know, and so I guess I appear to be intimidating. I have never tried to start a fight, and I like to step in the middle of fights when I feel I should, and try...

    "The good people in this world are very far

    from being satisfied with each other and my arms are the best peacemaker." ~ Samuel Colt (1852) Sometimes being a peacemaker isn't being a soft and cuddly teddy bear tree hugging bunny lover who tolerates everyone...... and everything. ;)
