Speak with sincere heartfelt compassion and understanding, and you will often see an immediate transformation in the person with whom you are interacting. Someone who was just angry, upset, or resentful will quickly become a much softer, open person. Add sincere, unconditional, selfless love, and inevitably you will see this transformation even in people who others call "difficult, challenging, or even impossible."
This type of true inner feeling takes time and patience to develop.
(From Rabbi Pliskin's book "Marriage",
Chapter One, pp.28-9)
