Picking Claire up from school today a parent had the most insightful comment. He said, “The problem isn’t that we all have different opinions. It is that we think everyone else should share our opinion.”
I see that I have fallen into this trap as well. Maybe today you can stop and listen to your thoughts… Do you get upset when others don’t see eye to eye with you? Can you hear and truly listen to someone whose opinion is different than yours? Can you see what you both have in common (if only the fact that you are both human)? I wonder what would happen if we all just took a few moments to try and get along each day.
