I was having a discussion with my mom yesterday. She has always been good at handling difficult situations. She has always told me, “I will stand beside you in any situation but you have to give me the facts.”
During our conversation she made a statement that I have heard her say on multiple occasions throughout my life:
“I truly believe that we are all doing the best that we can with the information and experience that we have at the time.”
I have not stopped thinking about this ever since our conversation.
I hope I can remember this when I enter into any dialogue. I hope that I can pass this onto my kids so that they can learn to communicate, agree, and disagree most effectively.
Information and experiences change, thereby bringing about different perceptions. I think that is one of the nice things about all of this.
I should never be afraid to dig my heels into the ground but I probably should not get planted there.
Peace, Love and all things Beef related,
