Work to understand rather than be understood...
Still having residual neck pain from last Friday's ESI injections and so I am wide awake.
I was thinking about the people in our lives that are quick to judge.
Sure hope we aren't one of them.
I first heard this quote from a good friend (she is a therapist) and it is a powerful motto to try and live by, "Always work to understand rather than to be understood."
Just like a bright sunny day to a snow covered field - nothing melts distrust, judgement and hostility away... like an honest attempt to UNDERSTAND.
Make it an understanding sort of dia!
