I’ve had to learn to not let my ‘Iceberg’ clash with others, and really have an open mind. I had to start believing that there are only perspectives and someone’s truth isn’t for me to define. I cant lie in sharing with my friend, initially I wanted to yell at him and let him no that his risky behaviour is crazy, but how could I when no one has ever taken the time to teach him, and prior to this he has never felt comfortable to have this conversation. When he spoke, I could understand reasons and once I spoke I feel he understood me. This conversation didn’t take place at work, nor have anything to do directly with work, but had everything to do with the purpose of being here, connecting, sharing, educating and empowering others.
I feel like there are a lot of gaps in this entry because I’m being very elusive to respect my friend’s story, but its not always about the workplace and the things you do there, but the work you put in with people no matter where you are is key to the world’s development.
