Just Listen


 

I don't know what it means to be a black man in America. I don't know what it means to be a woman anywhere, I don't know what it means to grow up in a third world country, and I'm not going to pretend I do, when Instead, I could just listen. People don't understand me as much as I understand them, and neither of us will ever understand each other if we spend more time judging, and less time being curious and asking. Some folks listen to respond, others listen to reply. Which one are you when you're conversing with someone who may look, act, live, or believe differently than you? We can all complain about how little others understand us, but how many of us are willing to admit how little we understand others. It's one of the reasons comparing ourselves to others is futile, because we don't know what's happening behind the scenes in their lives. We don't have the right to an opinion, we have the right to an INFORMED opinion, and to have an informed opinion, we need to spend more time listening. Jumping to conclusions only hurts us. #BLESS
