Dear Hannah: LEarning (I Get It (Empathy))

November 20, 2017

Dear Hannah,

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.

Love,

Daddy
