I have to chuckle, I am so vague sometimes to people’s questions. Recently I was doing a usual style of meet and greet with others like me. I was asked if I was on holidays they had not seen me for a while. I responded, “No” then asked if my health was well, “Yes” was my response and it continued with my one word answers.
I was not being rude, I just felt the person did not need to know nor do they always have our best interests at heart. They were just being nosy because that was their type of personality. This is them.
We were having a conversation the other day. We still see at our age, the “mean girls” and “mean boys” and you have to question were they like that all through school? I would consider the person that was chatting with me a mean boy. He is selective and very instant judgemental of people, especially if he does not agree with you.
They are the first to take your information and spread it to others, they are the first to judge you if you do something wrong and they are the first ones to point our errors or flaws to us but they are believing they are so perfect. The realism is they are worse then our self critic. Get them some luggage and send them packing along with your critic.
And then today I saw the other side at the same time. Caring and compassionate people who are there for the right reasons. Those that dealt with a situation, those that remained calm, those that went to bat for others to the “mean” ones. Those that joined together as one. It was amazing, it was a blessing, a blessing of the true gift of the human race.
These people didn’t have capes on, they were the normal person that you pass by on the street. The ones who may hold a door for you, may lend a shoulder to you, or an ear to bend. So I challenge you to the following quote and ask yourself how would this change your life?
“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” Og Mandino
PS the Black Cranium was a supervillain out for themselves until an encounter with a kindly monk made them see the error of their ways, now they fight for good.
You can find your superhero name online. Spook checked hers out, and is still laughing: Doctor Microbe.
Enjoy your blessings from a Woman in Process.
