How does one know when they are growing?
Do you accept people for who they are?
Do you know that EVERYONE has idiosyncrasies?
Most importantly, do YOU know that you have them too?
Do you know that what you perceive as your “normal” quirks,
are NOT more acceptable than someone else’s?
Do you even acknowledge that you may indeed, have weird ways?
Do you try to get the speck out of someone else’s eye?
While not dealing with the beam in your own eye?
It’s easier to try to “tell” someone about who you think they are.
It’s easier to try to tell someone how to act or how not to;
not being able to handle when someone tells you their perception of YOU.
Can you acknowledge that we are all different?
BUT, know that we can still embrace each other,
(While making a mental determination)
if those “different” ways are worth a “next time”?
While remembering that you too, are not perfect?
If you answered yes to 8 of those,
