Do you first notice the effort, or errors?
Do you recognize the growth, or only see the immaturity?
Is their pain visible to you, or do you only note, and then emphasize their behaviors?
Do you focus on the potential, or do you obsess over the problems?
Can you gratefully accept a challenge, or will you throw up your hands in defeat?
Do you detect the beauty within imperfection, or will you discard it like trash?
Do you question why a five-year-old needs a special room at school to de-stress, or do you accept that pressure is an essential part of life for even the youngest among us?
Do you wonder why coercion is an immense component of our culture, or do you accept it as inevitable?
Your perspective is a powerful tool. Those initial interpretations will automatically determine your response, as well as the impact you will have on someone’s life.
Will you be an agent of affirmation, possibilities, empathy, and change, or will you be a curator of the status quo?
