Leave their noses intact

Regarding every perspective, however seemingly absurd to you or I, there is a level of consciousness to which that perspective makes perfect sense.

The mockery of another’s beliefs is nothing more than evidence that the mocker is ignorant of the one whom he mocks.

When the desire to genuinely understand others supplants the need to feel above them, we learn to communicate with a quality of compassion that radically changes lives.

If our goal is only to “keep it real” or give others “a piece of our mind” without regard for how they may benefit from what we have to say, then none of this matters.

If, on the other hand, we wish to have a positive impact with our message, it may be worth making an effort to demonstrate a modicum of sensitivity in what we share.

As an Indian Proverb says: “Once you’ve cut off a person’s nose, there’s no use in giving him a rose to smell.”

  1. Bro, that makes sooo much sense… I kmow a lot of ppl like that and I just listen to what their not saying. Like the fact that a person is trying to make themselves sound better or superior tells me a lot about them, and because i know who i am i just allow them the space to make them feel good and becaue i feel bad for them me “being real” or “putting them in their place” isn’t going to do anything but make however they feel about themselves feel worse… Great thought bro…
