The Reality of People

Unable to sleep, I am lying in bed at midnight and thinking about someone who once hurt me. I start to compose a blog in my head, thinking about how I always see the best in people. But before I can debate which position I’m going to take for this blog post… before I can decide whether it's good or bad to see the best in everyone, my brain cuts in with another thought entirely.


What about seeing the reality of people?


What about seeing people in their goodness and their badness and knowing that neither one defines them?


What about seeing yourself in lightness and darkness… and knowing that neither defines you either?
