“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” ~ Winston Churchill
So .. Do we have the courage to sit down and listen to someone else’s point of view, see someone else’s perspective, understand someone else’s feelings? A lot of us are so into ourselves that we cannot see beyond ourselves, that someone else might actually be correct, that someone else might have a point of view that actually contradicts ours.
One thing I have learnt in the last few years … Speak your truth. Do go ahead and say what is in your heart. Don’t keep it in – its our right to say it. But also give the opportunity for someone else to say their truth too and listen to their truth. After all, its a free world 😉
