As hard as this might be for you to swallow, the rest of the world will survive without your intervention. They're doing pretty okay so far.
In fact, being 100% honest, who follows advice? No, what we need is the leeway to figure things out on our own. Nothing can be taught. (Ne c'est-ce pas, Beloo?)
You do have a magnificent gift to give, though. We all do.
It's the gift of listening. And listening not with the intent to reply, but with the intent to understand. (Yes, #5 of Stephen Covey's 7 Habits. So shoot me. The man has a point.)
I've often wished my dogs could speak. What goes on in their heads? How do they understand life? (Most frustratingly, where does it hurt?) But I think if they could speak, they wouldn't--not nearly as much as we do (except for that where does it hurt).
Because, see, dogs have mastered the art of listening. They listen without impatience; they're not waiting for us to finish speaking so they can put in their "two cents", show off their witty repartee, contradict us with brilliant sources and resources. They might walk away if our BS gets too thick--and if a dog walks away from your BS, it's pretty thick.
For a dog, listening is only about understanding.
Do like a dog. Give the people you care about that greatest of gifts. Just listen.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy A-to-Z-ing!
