People change and forget to tell each other. Lillian Hellman
This falls more into the “helpful reminder” category today.
Once I read that all of the cells in your body change over a certain period of time. You are literally entirely new on a regular basis.
But we forget to communicate through these changes with those closest to us.
We’re surprised when they react as if they didn’t know we had changed our position or attitude towards something.
And we forget that they are entirely new as well and that their position or attitude has changed as well.
I haven’t found a magical tip or trick on this one, just a mountain to continue to climb – because meaningful relationships are worth it.
Slow down for a few minutes today and let someone you care about tell you how they’ve changed.
Make it a great day.
PS – Another reminder – the old adage “people don’t change” is BS. People change all the time, just not in the ways we think they should or even in the ways they would like to.
