Do we have to like everything and everyone?

Hi coaches,

I’m trying to reconcile the choice to like things, people and situations.

I have a colleague that I do not particularly like. I find her abrasive. I’m doing my work on noticing my thoughts and feelings when she says things to me, but I’m wondering if I’m ALSO supposed to be choosing to like her?

Are we supposed to like and love everyone in equal measure? Is that the point? Is there a way to have varying degrees of like/interest in people and things as long as the thoughts are clean and there is no drama or is the goal to have positive feelings about everything and everyone?

Brooke talks about not liking peaches. But from what I understand from the Model, that is a choice. So why doesn’t she just choose to like them?
