Meet people halfway

Henry Boye talks about the most important trip you may ever make – meeting someone halfway – but I think it can also be one of the hardest trips to make.

If you’re anything like me, you’re a little stubborn. You like to be right. Compromise is important, and something you strive for, but it’s not exactly your first reaction. Are you with me? 🙂

So, for all of my like-minded, a little bit stubborn friends out there, here’s what I can offer:
~~~What feels better? Being right, or being happy?

This question helps. In those moments when I just want to dig my heels in and do anything but compromise, I remember that I want to live a life that feels good, not just one that looks good

(Let’s just get really real for a moment and acknowledge that being right often isn’t either of those things.) 

Starting today, I invite you on this most important (and difficult) trip. Meet someone halfway. Someone important to you. Someone with whom you want to increase connection. Someone who makes you feel good. Just give it a try, and see if meeting someone halfway just might feel better than being right.

Thank you for being on this journey with me.
