Reach - Then Teach
Dear Hannah: LEarning (I Get It (Empathy))
I am LEarning to listen and observe more than I talk.
I see and hear a lot of stuff that I do not understand.
I accept these events as part of my LEarning.
The easy road is to dismiss it all with judgement and opinion.
The tougher road is LEarning to practice empathy.
So if a cat shows or tells me something that sounds crazy, it helps me remember how crazy I have sounded to other people ... even recently.
That road reminds me that I don't know what roads led these cats to their positions, mindsets and actions.
Then I accept that we all have free will - to think whatever we think, say whatever we say, and do whatever we do.
Then I resolve to do better.
