March 30.2015 – Opening A Hand by Linda Picone

“You can’t shake hands with a clenched fist.” – Indira Gandhi

We sometimes have to act polite towards a person we dislike or who has hurt us. So we put on a fake smile and do
what we need to do to make things okay.

Instead of putting on a fake smile, though, what if we tried smiling for real? Is thee something we might like about this person if given a chance? Do we really have a good reason to dislike the person in the first place?

Maybe we wont become great friends. But we’ll never know unless we open ourselves to the possibility.

The next time I encounter someone I don’t particularly like, I will be genuinely interested in what the person thins and says. This may show me a new side of the person I’ve never seen before.
