Our default state is to judge others by the outcomes we see.
And then we expect to be judged by the processes they do not see [if only they would understand my circumstances, they will understand!].
We seek justice when they wronged us, but we seek clemency when we wronged them.
We wish them karma when they have done us bad, forgetting that we have done bad onto to others as well [what if they wished the same to us].
What if we flipped that?
Or, perhaps, learned to consistently find middle ground?
In moments of conflict, seeing someone whole is both a noble and difficult thing. It is worthwhile pursuit because that’s where possibility lives.
I may not agree with you, but I still have to see you.
