I quote this fellow quite frequently. His words give me food for thought and reach a place deep inside of me.
“We often don’t take the risk or time to stand before another long enough for their truth to surface. This is what I need, for you to wait till I can get there, all fresh from the deep.” Mark Nepo
I often feel this when in conversation with people. they don't take the time to stand before me long enough for my words to surface. I too need people to wait.
Wait for me to finish speaking instead of jumping ahead of me with what you think I am going to say. When you do this it robs me of my words and and shuts me down.
“Show yourself and I will swim to you.” Mark Nepo
Reveal yourself to me and I will gladly walk along side of you and share my world with you.
