We often prejudge don’t we? We stereo type and immediately jump to conclusions. I hate that about myself. I’m a work in progress. I catch myself doing it and instantly feel guilty.
Everyone does have a story. We have sequels….some are slow moving and don’t catch our attention. But the next one is keeping us on the edge or makes our minds work overtime trying to understand the twists. A few sequels are shameful and we can’t believe what the character just did. How could they?
Sometimes people go through storms, hurricanes, torrential downpours and accidents happen. There’s wreckage and a lot of clean up afterwards. Some people don’t have the Disaster Relief Agencies to come to their rescue.
I think it’s safe to say we’ve all had some shit storms in life right? Did you have someone there for you to just listen?
When my friends and family tell me their problems I right away start analyzing ways to help them out of their situation. Maybe they don’t need me to fix it for them or to come up with ideas on how to address the problem. Can’t I just shut up and listen and allow them to vent? Of course I can.
I need to heed to my own advice. I write this blog mostly talking to myself. If you read this and get something from it that’s fantastic. But I use this blog as a journal/diary too because I do go back and read my stuff from time to time. It helps me to remind myself of the right things to do and I can learn from my writing this way.
In this case….I need to listen always before judging. I have no clue of the dues that someone has paid nor have I seen their receipts. I need to remember they have stories just like me.
So let’s fill our lives with our stories…whether they’re scary, sad, adventurous, thrilling, loving, or happy…. let’s make it the craziest finale ever.
