Have you ever noticed that when people ask, “how are you?” they really don’t mean it or even care or wait around long enough to hear the response? Most people are looking for “good” to be your response so please don’t throw them off by saying anything contrary. God forbid you cause them to slow down from their busy day by responding truthfully. That would be so rude of you.
Also, haven’t you found it to be true that when people say, “if you need anything, call me”, it’s really just a nice gesture? Most people really don’t want you to call and will likely have your name listed with a code word after it or a special ringtone to ensure they don’t accidentally answer the call.
Now hopefully these are just my personal and somewhat cynical views as opposed to those of the general population but then again….look at the times.
Soooo…with that being said, how about when people say, “I’m excited about your growth”…do they really mean it? With growth comes change, not just change for that person but change for everyone in that person’s life. Are you up for it? Can you stand by and follow through on your initial response to that person’s growth or is the initial response…the nice but empty gesture, what holds true in your heart? Think on it!
Be Bold, Be You, Be Blessed!
