Rush, rush, rush! That is what we all seem to do these days. We’re always rushing and worrying about getting things done.
Sadly, in the rush to succeed, sometimes other people become things or inanimate things to us, rather than the wondrous, inspiring, and interesting human stories which they truly are. We’re really missing out on the good things in life when we don’t allow ourselves to fully understand people.
Let’s take a minute to take into account the people in our life. Let us pause and spend another moment wisely by thinking about our loved ones, our friends, our classmates, our co-workers, our teammates, and anyone else that people come into contact with on a daily basis. How well do we actually know all these interesting people? Is our knowledge of them just a surface understanding, or do we actually deeply know all these people? Do we understand what makes them tick? Do we know their favourite foods or favorite places to go? Just how much do we actually know about their favorite pastime, or hobby? You see, all of us think we know the people in our lives, but do we really?
A lot of us are so involved in our own story of success and/or success that we rarely ever get a chance to dive deeply into someone else’s story. But yet, we should take some time to dive deeply into someone else’s life because it is well worth the time and energy. In addition, there are many fascinating stories out there that we are missing. Let’s try to not miss any more of them.
Now teens, go learn, lead, and lay the way to a better world for all of us. Let’s make sure that we slow down a little bit, listen, and get to deeply understand different people because it really is worth it. And once more, thanks in advance for all that you do, and everything you will do…
