Miscalculation of My Value

I noticed a woman’s dominate behavior with her children the other day and wondered how often I had dictated behaviors and directed interactions that didn’t need to be dictated or directed, or how often I had miscalculated and overestimated my contribution with…

  • my children
  • my friends
  • other family members
  • my associates

I can’t undo the past, but I can honor people more now by…

  • listening more than talking
  • appreciating others input and talents more
  • giving the benefit of a doubt
  • seeing everyone as my equal

(The following quote applies to people, not just kids.)

People remember what you are.

  1. I have been thinking the same thing lately, along the lines of “Who do I think I am?” I’ve been looking at others and considering, “That person has the same perspective that I do”. Meaning, he/she is the center of their universe, just as I am in mine. What right do I have to dictate events in the next Universe? Who says I know best?

  2. I know!! Thanks, Kerman, for the camaraderie!

  3. And, by the way, I’ve been thinking about how you should change… (haha)
