I certainly am not an elitist, and believe in true equality… that all people have the same rights, freedom, access to abundance, and should be able to achieve all they desire. But, that doesn’t mean that everyone is at the same “level”. I wouldn’t want to be matched up against Michael Jordan in a basketball game, one on one, and expected to be able to compete at his level. I also wouldn’t want to be responsible for the earnings, day trading the stock of Microsoft. And I doubt the shareholders would either. Yet so often we place expectations on people who are just not on the same page, capable of what we are, or capable of what we ask. They are not at our level. It is easy to recognize when the stakes are extreme but they also exist at the subtlest level. Accepting people as they are is a gift, that not only you can give them, but yourself. It saves everyone involved from hurt or injury. People are just at different levels; physically, mentally, emotionally, psychically, socially, consciously, financially… It is not personal.© jodihealy.com if you do, like/share 🙂
