Different Strokes

September 13, 2016, Prescott- 

Today,I heard that someone who takes issue with my facilitating style will absent herself from the Wednesday group.  At work, I find it best to treat a couple of colleagues with kid gloves- and to keep my distance from one, in particular, unless it’s absolutely necessary to consult.

Not everyone is going to respond positively, to any one of us, at any given time.  The best course of action, for me, has always been to keep an open mind and heart, while giving  hateful people a wide berth.  By “hateful”, I do NOT mean critical.  God knows, I have learned much from those with differing perspectives.  Those who don’t have my well-being at heart, though, are best avoided.

Sooner or later, though, the human race will learn that every person has some value.  I will have more to say, on other subjects, tomorrow.  Now, though, I’m tired of the struggle and will say “Goodnight, all.”

  1. Gary, I admire your facilitation style. Having known you for many years now, I am aware of your kindness and open heart for others. It is difficult when we know our intentions are good and others reject us due to their own issues with patience and control. Keep the Faith and know you are honored by many. sueb.

  2. I agree with what you have said. I too, try to keep away from people whom I will find a bit negative. I care for people, and would listen to people’s problem any time. But some, its better kept at arms length.
