Pineapples and People
Pineapples are interesting – prickly on the outside and ever so sweet on the inside. Do you sometimes feel like life is trying to make us this way? I think it takes a lot more energy to engage respectfully with people we may disagree with than it does to put a hard, distanced front.
That’s why I have so much more respect for people who orient their lives in a way that prioritizes treating people with respect, while still being true to their beliefs and values. What do you think?
