It has been said that “people will remember how you made them feel.” I hope that I will have made people feel worthy of my time, inspired, loved, heard, welcomed… Unfortunately, I’m sure I have made those closest to me feel, at times, guilty, embarrassed, hurt, inadequate. I hope that my love (and God’s) will cover over my multitude of sins.
Memories of past experiences of joy and hope which were always expanding me, not constricting; which beckoned me to “go” and be open, rather than to stay in the comfort of what I already know. It is tempting to stay in comfort, but waters that are not stirred become stagnant.
Appreciate that people communicate differently, and try not to judge certain communication styles as “wrong” just because i find it challenging. Not everyone has taken communication skills training. Not every bird sounds the same. Appreciate the amazing gift of communication in all its forms.
Thank you so much for sharing this. I am crying, and haven’t shed tears in a long time. In my case, it is a good thing to be crying. I miss my parents too.
