We Have No Idea How to Listen
Updated: May 6, 2022
The truth is
We have no fucking idea how to listen to each other anymore
The winds howl louder than our ability to speak and listen to the truths these days.
It’s not intentional.
Nobody wants to be a “bad” parent, partner, teacher, friend, etc.
It’s that’s there’s a lack of knowing how.
We are the product of the generations before us,
and yet we make choices every moment of every day that either perpetuate the victimhood,
or move us to take accountability.
We are less connected and less rhythmic than the generations before us.
And it’s hurting us.
We are isolated and hunched over screens looking for connection, motivation, meaning.
And beautifully and frustratingly and humbly,
Every piece of our culture,
societal construct, every system
has people at the root.
And the most actionable changes start at the root.
With me and you.
Doing our work
To get back to ourselves
