LISTEN to Other’s Truth

I have heard far too many people lately dismiss other people’s truths.  It seems like it is so difficult for some people to fathom that other people have a COMPLETELY different reality than they do, that they experience things that we wish weren’t true.  But denying them, denying other people’s truths – will not make things better, it will not make things go away.  It might make YOU feel better, to live in your bubble – but it will not make their experience any less true.

PLEASE read this article, please have converstations with people who don’t look like you, LISTEN to other people’s truths, being in denial helps nobody:
