In the last blog I mentioned the value of having and being a good friend. Being an authentic friend does not mean to imply you will always agree with other or will not share your perceptions. It does mean that you can live with the complexities of someone’s life. Your own included. Understand that you might be wrong or just each see things differently. Being right all the time is a sign of an immature brain laced with fear and the need to control. I’ve learned that even if I am right—or believe I am right—the timing for the other to hear me might not be right. You don’t keep pulling up a daffodil bulb to see if it is growing. Let it be.
