Last week a good friend asked me a very sincere and heart filled question. What's wrong with people? His questions was in reference to the current state of political affairs in our country and a the obvious lack of respect and understanding sweeping across our nation as a whole. After several moments of awkward silence and a pulsing stare I realized he really wanted an answer.
My Answer: People seem to care more about being right, not better.
So many people are waiting to talk, not listening to understand. What doesn't directly impact a person they seem to ignore, hoping to avoid uncomfortable conversations. Many of us walk around so consumed with self, that we don't leave room for anyone else. I believe we are losing our value for people and replacing it with value of self.
My Solution: Add value to people
Here's the catch. You can't add value to people, until you actually start to Value People.
