Just this week I was helped to think about something in a new way.
By someone I like and respect.
Direction versus Imposition.
I was made to think about the difference between direction and imposition.
The difference between guiding, and telling.
And it was useful.
Because I sometimes get this wrong.
Trust is the key.
For me, anyway.
This discussion opened my eyes to the fact that instead of addressing the problem.
(Why I don’t trust).
I can sometimes mask the problem by plopping another problem on top.
(Imposing instead of directing).
It’s good for me to take a look at this.
I feel ready.
And it’s only taken 55 years to acknowledge that I might need to improve.
