There are many shared spaces we have the opportunity to be in.
An exercise class. A transition area. Work. Grocery store.
When someone does something differently than you within that shared space, it may have an impact on you. It may not be your ideal. You may even be worse off.
How we respond makes all the difference.
Let’s try to respond with grace. Let’s put the other person’s desires above our own. If we can do it in the small spaces. The small interactions. Maybe it will spread?
But if we can’t share the small spaces, its no wonder we have trouble figuring out how to share our cities, states, and countries.
