We can share with others our irrational and angry side. We can share our political, parental and even childrearing expressions and opinions. Even the child in us, now a parent to the parent shares what is right and should be done’s. We can express and claim our needs and rights to the stop sign or to go the speed limit (or better) to the drivers in front of us. We share our impulsive side, our silly and romantic expressions and needs. As managers, employees, citizens and consumers we freely share the unmet needs.
Why then, is it so hard, perhaps even rare, for the naked soul and heart to quietly whisper to another, “I hurt” or “I need”? Is there no invitation?
May my heart and spirit, with all their shortcomings and small wisdom, always offer to another, the comfort and invitation of uttering such a whisper.
