Archives: Community Spotlights
When we truly get to know ourselves, we become freer in our interactions, with no personal emotional strings attached, no unresolved personal issues playing out in meetings, no resentments, and no ‘impossible’ conversations. We become able to be comfortable with all aspects of ourselves, allowing us to accept the values, strengths and shadows of others.
Ever since I first heard it, this quote from Bill Nye has stuck with me: “Everyone you’ll ever meet knows something you don’t.” It’s a simple message that serves as a reminder of the importance of listening, continuously learning, rethinking positions, and recognizing the value each person brings. These are important concepts in advocacy and life.
