Day 24 – People and their opinions
“I have respect for other people’s models of the world. “
If you are personally developed, you will not downplay other people or their attitudes, no matter what they do.
You do not have to agree with them, but you will be able to understand that their lives have been shaped differently and that they are, therefore, acting the way they do. If you think of murderers and assassins here, you will, of course, be challenged, but be grateful that you were not born into their families and have not experienced what they have. Wrong beliefs and trauma have (probably) been a big part of their lives.
“One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth.
Growth must be chosen again and again;
fear must be overcome again and again.”
– Abraham Maslow
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
– Thomas Edison
