Just the Tip
What you see isn’t always what you get.
The iceberg is a perfect example of that. Same goes for people.
What we allow others to see in us isn’t necessarily what’s at the root of who we really are. Most of us learned from a young age what to reveal about ourselves and what to hide.
So, next time you’re shaking your head about someone’s words or actions….think about what it is that you cannot see that propels them to be the way they are on the surface.
I’m going to live with the assumption that every person is fighting a hard battle that I know nothing about and offer them the grace that I hope someone would do for me.
It’s just the tip of the iceberg, right?
