Cherish the People Around Us

Sometimes we act out our bad habits on the persons closest to us. But acting out these bad habits creates anger and bad karma in the other person. So we loose their blessings, as well as hurting those we love, perhaps one day finding that it is to late.

So it is better to let compassion and wisdom resolve the bad habits, rather than acting them out on somebody else.

We should therefore cherish the people around us.
