What are we accepting?

One of the life lessons that I’ve learned time and again, that I still find myself wrestling with is…


Accepting people for who they are.

The old adage of meeting people where they are. Instead of where you want them to be, is always easier said than done.

This is applicable for those people in our lives, who consistently make their presence known only to ask what YOU can do for them.

Just before they slip back into the shadows.

Strangely, the roles are seldom reversed.

And the cruel irony of history always finding a way to repeat itself.

Is this one of those “lessons” that can’t be learned?

    Oh how I wonder the same thing: is this a lesson that can’t be learned. I always TRY to meet people where they are but with some people that’s just so darn hard.

      Indeed it is. It only seems to work in theory oddly enough.


  2. Possibly, you may just be right. 🙂

  3. shaping self – is rather difficult; and we try to shape others – like the way a sculptor uses clay. easy but to create a better U is once again a difficult process.

      Indeed, it is an ongoing process one where we falter because we sometimes lack the wherewithal to speak the hard truths to ourselves.
