the high road

Appreciation takes courage and considerable resolve. It’s the high road, and not everyone is willing to take it. You are saying no to blame, to resentment, to revenge, to violence in any form — from badmouthing others, to kicking the dog, to berating a person. You are saying no to victimhood, to martyrdom, to passing the buck, to criticism, and to demeaning yourself or others.

-Noelle C. Nelson, from The Power of Appreciation
