The world isn't going to change for any of us, we have all learned that the hard way. The other day when I was a little down because of the wickedness of this world I read a very powerful little coment that simply said "be kind everyone is struggling with something". True? you bet.
I have learned over the years that most of our behaviour is not by choice but rather by live-long ingrained habit patterns. We learned disfunctional communication skills from parents, family, friends and educators who themselves were 'victims of victims' as Robert Bolton points out in "People Skills". When it comes to interpersonal communication we still live in the dark ages.
I have endless regrets that go back decades about my lack of people skills. This world is boot camp, no doubt. I remember someone in her early sixties saying 'we get smart to late'.
It seems to take a life-time to learn anything much.
Be of good cheear, Giz. :-)
