We look at people and see an aspect, sometimes simply a façade.. and we judge them on this, we sum them up. It’s easy, it’s automatic and quick- “Ah.., so your that type of a person!!’. Rarely do we take the time to truly get to know someone, to allow their facets to naturally unfold and be shown. Rarely do we create a safe space for them to do this in, nor do we allow ourselves the privilege of witnessing this, the privilege of seeing the beauty of another’s true self.
I can’t help but think of a flower bud, of how we view this small aspect of the flower as potential and we wait patiently for it to fully bloom, all the while marveling in the majestic process.
