Remember your past!

.  Remember Your Past

“I got a fortune cookie that said, ‘To remember is to understand.’ I have never forgotten it. A good judge remembers what it was like to be a lawyer. A good editor remembers being a writer. A good parent remembers what it was like to be a child.”

Anna Quindlen,

Author and Journalist

 

Steven Covey has said seek first to understand, then to be understood.  Very sage advice in life.  Each person comes to a situation with a different perspective that is at times uniquely different than your own at this time in your life due to perhaps your own growth and change.  Remember this- those that you come into contact may not have had the life lessons or the life experiences that you are so fortunate to have at a later time in your life- that is where compassion and empathy play a role.  You can have a positive or negative impact on another’s life.  Take a moment to understand before you act.  The small act may change the outcome for the better in any situation.
