Something radical for me, anyway.

Other people differ in their abilities to be understanding towards others, and, thus with that, towards me.

That, by the way, in addition to any differences in if they want to be understanding, which is also important to understand, but not a radical idea.

For me, though, that idea that others have different abilities in being understanding, it's a radical idea.

Does the differences of other people's abilities apply to anything other than their understanding toward others? Perhaps their understanding or useage of language? Or ideas about manners? Or the "proper" way to do any of a myriad of things?

Of course there are many differences in abilities that others have. Nothing new in noting that.

Has this changed things for you...this new understanding?

I find I can be very judgmental of others! I am working towards changing this...it is not easy! I am critical of others...but I am even more critical of myself! Can you relate to that?

I am learning that the less critical I am toward myself, the less critical others are toward me. I used to believe I deserved that criticism, that I was being punished and I deserved unhappiness! Now I am beginning to see that just isn't true!

I thought I would share in case you can relate :)

I hope you are doing well and that acceptance of others, their judgments, and your own judgments is something you are growing towards at each moment of your days! Good luck...keep us posted :)

love~
