You’re at a junction and someone cuts you off, driving away at a speed you deem to be reckless.
Is the driver a careless fool? Or, are they racing towards an emergency?
What would happen to you or your life if you decided to only make generous presumptions?
To presume everyone is doing the best they can with what they know and have?
That everyone is fighting their own invisible battle?
That everyone is striving towards happiness but many don't know how to achieve it and stumble on the way, knocking you down with them?
What would happen to your life and mood if you believed that people are trying their best?
And that they crave love, belonging, certainty and to feel accepted, just as much as you do.
What's the story you tell yourself, and is it helpful or hindering?
But remember - it's your life, your choice!
After all, this is the Manual of YOU!
Until next time, take care, stay safe - and sane - and make kind choices!
