Rules for Getting Along
Getting along with others is hard.
They don’t agree with us. They have their own issues and concerns. And darn it, they don’t do what we need and want them to do. So we get mad at them.
But perhaps Humanistic compassion can help us find a better way.
- What if … we respect the right of the other person to be different?
- What if … don’t try to reform them?
- What if … we genuinely try to understand them for who they are instead of who we wanted them to be?
