“It is only when we are willing to step into the unknown that we can expect to learn something new.”
-Robert E. Staub, II
Every time you face a situation that is challenging or that brings up your defensive mechanisms, begin by asking yourself, “In this moment, would I prefer to be RIGHT or to be HAPPY?” Have the courage to elicit feedback from those around you: ask beautiful, open-ended questions that seek to clarify intent. Allow yourself to be surprised and enlightened, to see things from a new perspective. If you can’t engage in a conversation, dream into alternate explanations for the behavior of others, and find novel ways of responding. Compassion and humor will serve you well in this.
