AN ERROR IN PERCEPTION
"There are two kinds of light- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures."
~ James Thurber ~
It's so hard to unconditionally trust the people we love and to love them without judgment. We think we know better what's best for them, that they are all wrong and off base, that they need our guidance and direction to find their way. And maybe they do, some of the time, in certain ways; but more often, they need our encouragement. They need to know that we trust them to figure it out, to find the solution, to reach a bit farther than they think they can. So let's stop questioning others and start promoting their own resourcefulness, intuitive knowing, and inner strength.
