My word: Left or right, you’ll still have to move
By CHRISTINE KOECH | 1 month ago
We are missing out on some conversations. Sometimes it’s through no fault of our own and sometimes it is because we choose to avoid them.
It sometimes feels easier to pretend something is not happening -- even though it’s happening right under our noses. But that is just an illusion because ignoring things and sweeping things under the carpet actually makes things even harder.
Some once said, “Choose your hard”. And it’s true, it doesn’t serve anyone to be in denial about time and change.
So, are you going to have those difficult conversations with your children, or are you going to wait and see the effects of the damaging information they will gather on their own?
Are you going to deal with that scary or embarrassing medical condition or are you going to wait until it destroys your life or the life of someone you love?
Are you going to pretend there’s no harm done by something that was carelessly uttered or are you going to nip it in the bud and correct the person before it becomes a habit?
Are you going to stand up for the person who is suffering injustices or are you going to wait until it’s too late and you can only wish you had done something?
Choose your hard. So which one is it going to be?
