I’m in. Are you?
Couldn’t sleep last night, too busy reflecting and contemplating on so many things. The thought I’ve come back to again and again is this…
Everybody wants to be right. Everybody wants to be heard. Everybody thinks they’re doing the best that they can.
Can we extend this same grace to others? We often wish people would be more understanding of us, more empathetic, that people WOULD JUST SEE THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS, that they would just finally realize that WE are right!
Meanwhile the person with the opposite point of view is thinking the same thing.
Can we all take a minute today for a thought experiment? Can we take a moment to really, honestly try to put ourself in someone else’s shoes? This could be politically, relationship-wise, whatever… Take time to be honest. Take time to understand. I’m in. Are you?
