So why is it that so often when we are presented with somebody else’s “shit” such as their judgments, opinions, resentments, assumptions and nastiness, do we not only step right into it, but pick it up, play with it, snuggle it close and choose to call it our own? Don’t we have enough of our own shit to deal with? Is there some shit shortage on the horizon that we are stocking up for? Some sort of SHITpocalypse?
Just like when we are stepping out in our brand new fancy shoes, every day is a new day to venture out into the world with our brand new selves and every moment gives us the choice to either jump in to other people’s judgements, fears, resentments and assumptions with both feet or simply step around them and stay in our own lane. Remember; at the end of the day, other people’s shit does not have to become our reality. -G Silva
