The Holidays

One valuable lesson that can be learned from the holidays is cultivating the ability to give other folks a wide range of “slack” instead of using selective judgments to form a static perception. I find it best to cut others some slack, find the best in them, and attempt to engage them in a discussion of their interests or philosophies without any form of judgment. You’ll have a better time, I promise and you may just learn something. If your “others” have differing fundamental philosophies or flaws in character, try looking at things a different way; invert, exploring the self for ways in which you display the same psychological bias. You may just learn something. Enjoy those close to you. Happy holidays.
