"The moment of greatest integrity is when we realize we've made a mistake." -- R. Buckminster Fuller
I make a lot of mistakes when visiting family: I assume I know everyone's agendas, I assume I know why they do what they do, I assume it's going to be difficult.
I am learning to -- and this week commit to -- hear people as they wish to be heard, see them as they wish to be seen, and experience them as they wish to be experienced. I intend to let others define themselves.
I'll let you know how it goes. How about you? Do you make assumptions about your relatives based on years of experience that may be outdated?
