Courtesy is paramount. Simple phases like: Can I interrupt? Do you mind if I park in your driveway for a minute or two? Do you mind if I block your driveway with my moving truck? Can I borrow your bike? Asking for permission creates peace instead of tension. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021


We don’t have to be loved by someone else to experience love. Love can’t be bought or bartered for. We are love and we don’t need anyone’s permission to love ourselves unconditionally. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2021
