Protests and stories.
95% of the time people in close relationships can not guess the other’s person’s motivation, this was discovered in a study done in the late ’90s using married couples, siblings, and close friends.
If these people, who are that close, only get it right 5% of the time, how much more do we get it wrong when it comes to strangers, colleagues, and other people groups.
In the wake of last week’s protests around our country, the need for us to listen to one another, to tell our stories, our struggles and our fears in safe spaces are needed more than ever and is crucial for the survival of our country, and our world. Stories bind us together, build empathy and understanding, and starts to crack open the hope that life can be better.
Get skin in the game, listen.
