Helllooooooo April. Today I’ve got another tasty kale salad to add to my variety of detox recipes. You’ve been asking me for more easy healthy recipes to add to your weeknight dinner tables or to tote along to work for a fabulous desk side lunch….so get ready for a powerhouse of flavor, antioxidants and mega goodness.
Lately I’ve been thinking about people who disagree. This happens a lot in medicine and with different viruses, health issues, etc. Every doctor, nurse, etc. has a different approach, protocol, plan, supplement for every ailment. I’m sure many of you agree with me on this.
But, for any of you who disagree with this and others who may disagree with you on certain subjects, it’s not that they’re misinformed or less educated. They simply had a different life experience that led them to a different conclusion than yours. You can use understanding in many aspects of your life.
Imagine a world where your family and friends fully understood you. They picked up on all the nuances and subtleties, knew when you needed comforting, when you need your alone time, etc. Imagine that! Imagine how that would feel. Probably a lot better, right? You might even think that if these folks understood you more, you may even like them more. Possibly?
So, when we feel understood, we feel much better about that person. So, what does it take? Not much; just to listen and even if you don’t hold the same viewpoint- that’s okay. There’s a reason they hold it and it’s not wrong- it’s just different from your viewpoint.
Everyone wants to be loved, accepted and understood so why are we so determined to find things we don’t like, don’t understand or don’t accept in others? Why is it that when people don’t agree with others viewpoints, they get so angry?
Just some food for thought. We can’t expect anyone to respect our opinion unless we respect theirs. Make sense?
What are your thoughts on this? Here’s a lovely (and detoxifying kale salad) for you to enjoy as you detox some of these thoughts!
