On its opening weekend my husband and I went to the theaters to see “Wonder Woman.” We had heard good things and were excited to see the film for ourselves. The reviews were right — we loved the movie. But I also experienced something I wasn’t expecting at all.
Being home for the holidays can be a wonderful chance to catch up with family and old friends. But for a lot of people, it’s also a time when we’re expected to open up – maybe more than we really want to – to distant relatives whose well-meaning questions strike just the wrong nerve.
Interviewing for a job has a way of setting your nerves on edge. It is, after all, a very vulnerable experience. You’re called in to sit before someone as they critically examine your work and character with off-the-cuff questions you have to give perfect answers to.
After all, not everyone will like everyone. Just because someone doesn’t particularly like you on a personal level doesn’t mean that you’re a bad person.
We miss so much growth when we overlook where we’ve come from and the journey each one of us has taken to arrive at our present position.
