As we vote this year, let’s remember what’s most important.
The other day, I talked with a dear friend who has different political opinions. One of her statements shocked me.
“We conservatives are being shut down by the liberals. Our voices and right to speak are being banned. Social media won’t allow me to post things until after the election.”
I thought – WOW – she needs to be heard.
I've heard the same concerns from liberals.
I listen even if I disagree. Then perhaps you’ll listen to me.
I told her ...
I may not agree with your opinion. I will agree that you have the right to speak. You have different experiences than I do. When I listen, I can and will learn. I still might not agree with your opinion. I will always do my best to honor your opinion. AND I will always consider you a dear friend. Your heart is in the right place. We all need to feel heard.
How often do we just need someone to listen to us?
During this difficult election remember people count.
Dance with Democrats.
Dance with Republicans.
Dance with Independents.
And if you can’t dance physically,
dance with your eyes, your heart,
and your kind loving spirit.
Creating a kinder world through music and
the power of Encouragement
