I love talking and over the years I have become better at listening too! One thing I find fascinating is listening to people’s daily lives. The efforts they put into earning a living, maintaining the unity within their families, keeping their children in check, waking up every day at 5 am for forty years, etc..
I once read that to rub off the sting of a negative comment it takes at least five positive ones. That is the strange way our minds work. We remember more the negative than the positive.
As I was thinking that the perseverance and the endurance of average people should make the headlines instead of the one off horrible act of a crazy person. But then it should probably be on 5 times more before we’d realize how brave they are!
