I will admit that I sometimes struggle to understand someone who thinks differently than I do. When I see or hear about someone who is handling a situation in a way I would not, I automatically go on the defense to rationalize why my way makes more sense. As much as I don’t like this about myself, I think the awareness only helps me grow and evolve past this narrow-minded view. Although my way might make more sense for myself, I know we are all created unique and wonderful in our own ways. One of my resolutions this year is to be inspired by those whose views differ from mine. Instead of immediately writing off a conflicting perspective or solution, I will work on opening my heart and embracing these ideas. Who knows what kind of beautiful change it could make?
