noticing people’s faults.
Usually when I see something someone does, a misbehavior that causes hurt, I look for my own version of that kind of thing. Then I think Here’s what I do to try to avoid doing that stuff. I hope that person figures out a similar solution. It doesn’t cross my mind that I’m making an assumption or two when I do that.
One simple sentence, not my own, brings me back. Hopefully, writing down this quote will etch it in my neuropaths.
When I criticize a person I assume he has a choice. I Touch the Earth, the Earth Touches Me a journal by Hugh Prather.
People have reasons for their behavior. I’m not fair when I assume I know what their reasons are. It’s not good to try to read people’s minds. I get it wrong more often than not, when I try to. Trying to read people’s minds is a misbehavior of mine. Go figure.
I don’t think I’d make a good juror. OR Does that mean that I would?
I find the whole thought hard to unravel.
