Today on The Good Life, Advancement Strategist, Coach Trainer, and Owner of AlphAdvancemnetStrategies.com shared about Why We Don’t Burn Bridges. Lori started off talking about where the expression comes from, and how our goal should be leaving relationships on good terms. She told us how burning a bridge could hurt our reputation, similar to how bigbox stores, Hollywood, and the NFL have burned theirs by purposefully coming against people groups who differ politically. Her point was to show that burning bridges can poison relationships.
Next, Lori admitted we need other people to fulfill God’s call on our life, and we want to be careful how we treat them along our journey. She highlighted four areas people burn bridges; when there’s a conflict, going in different directions, protecting loved ones, and having different ideas of doing things. She then told us God’s way of handling things, and the importance of doing what’s right for both parties. Finally, she shared how love covers a multitude, and encouraged us to own our part of any conflict as soon as possible. Listen in and hear more about it.
