"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away."
~ Henry David Thoreau
Will you allow others to be the person they are, the person they can be? Must you go on believing they should be something different - some way you think is better? Will you spend your precious hours thinking about how others should do things your way?
We're alike in our shared wish to love and be loved, to feel safe, to have reason to get up in the morning - after that we're a wild and wonderful variety of shapes and colours and ideas. How amazing that we see and experience the world in different ways, that we choose different things to care about, that we're able to imagine different possibilities and dreams, and as many different ways to make those dreams come true.
Let others be - and in reverse - free yourself of worry about what they think of you. The fearful spend their time creating limiting rules for being - the confident, with space available in the open mind, have better things to do.
Finding joy in what is.
