Are you approaching conversations thinking people are out to get you?
Do you think people that you encounter on social media are trying to harm you directly or harm the world and therefore you indirectly as a person of this world?
How do you feel about the conversations you are having on social media?
Are you even talking with anyone?
What if you could open up and connect with people and realize and choose to know that they are doing the best they can trying to make things better.
Their direction may be different than your own. After all people are not the same.
We ARE each very different. Its no wonder that we might each do things very differently.
When we choose to approach conversations in real life or on social media, knowing that people are different and will approach things different…
We choose to give them the benefit of the doubt that they are trying to be positive, open up and share some helpful insight, we can be grateful and choose to pursue the idea exercising curiosity.
We might learn something new. We might affirm a lesson learned or find a more effective way to apply a lesson and be successful.
We just need to let go of the idea that we are the center of the universe, not everything is about us. We can realize that not all people we interact with are trying to do us harm, nor do the world harm.
We can connect and learn and build trust with people doing the best they can with the experiences life has granted them.
