I have to remind myself often that most of us are trying our best; we are trying to navigate this life that can be so confusing & difficult. We have all been through experiences that hurt us deeply. We are full of triggers even though we are healing. We cling to behaviors that are not always becoming like control and jealousy. We show our pain in different ways; it makes it difficult for others to understand why we say the things we say, and do the things we do. We are judged by saying too much & judged for saying nothing at all. We are in the process of learning more & growing more, & we need the space & compassion from others to just be human. Let's allow for the learning curve. Let's allow for educating & listening. Let's allow for the difference in perspectives, & lead with an open mind & an open heart.
