I’m interested in who you are.
Not how you come across.
I think that takes a lot.
To look beyond the presentation and understand the person beneath. So much of our lives work on the superficial and we create the back story in our minds that justifies our initial perspectives.
With our 1% of perspective we create 100% of knowledge.
Or searching for understanding?
What would happen if we gave a little more of ourselves? If we invested a little more in helping people to understand us rather than complaining that they don’t?
What would happen if you risked a little more? If you expressed a little more? If you lived a little more?
How much do the people about you know about you? What makes you laugh? Where you’re ticklish? What makes you sad? What gets you up in the morning?
Would that make you a lesser person?
If people knowing more about you makes you more vulnerable, doesn’t it also make you more likeable?
Would you rather be liked for something you aren’t.
Or disliked for something you are?
