It took an argument for me to think of it, and it's a question that could just as easily be an accusation: couldn't this be accomplished with love?

It's easy to say. So easy, in fact, when you're asking it of someone else. But, it's not that simple. Nothing is. How did you get where you are? Couldn't *that* have been accomplished with love?

So how do you get there? How do you, in the heat of the moment, catch yourself and do things right? There is, of course, no right answer. All you can do is try.

Step 99: When you're in the midst of a tense situation, stop, give yourself a moment, and answer the question: couldn't this be accomplished with love?
