Daily Dose of Living

Get ready to maximise your potential, maximise your living with empress2inspire’s new posts series “Daily Dose of Living”. These series will bring you the best in personal development and productivity every day of the week. Your best life awaits. 

Today we will talk about how can we understand each other better. We Tolerate. Tolerance is a weak virtue, but it’s a good start. If someone’s behavior seems bothersome, it is best to avoid the knee-jerk reactions of fight or flight, and instead find ways to tolerate their differences. For example, let’s say you’re an aspiring minimalist, but your partner is an enthusiastic collector—a clear dichotomy of beliefs. Your partner believes collecting porcelain figurines or vintage guitars is the bomb diggity; you believe their treasures are clutter. So you’re left scratching your noggin, wondering how to convert them to your singularly valid viewpoint, which can be mind-numbingly frustrating. Don’t worry, though, you needn’t get on the same page right way; you need only understand you both have your reasons for being on separate pages. By tolerating someone’s quirks, and allowing them to live happily within their own worldview, you may not understand their obsession with creepy statuettes or unplayed musical instruments, but at least you will be on a path toward understanding that person as an individual—and that’s a big first step. Congrats!

Come back tomorrow for more inspiration.

    First and foremost😍, I can’t believe there’s another person on this planet who still uses the phrase bomb diggity😄🤗

    Second, this is a nice post. Tolerance. So simple. I like it. 😊

    Pointing out that we need to only understand that we both have our reasons for being on separate pages coupled with a committed path towards understanding each other as individuals is very important, I agree. To understand each other there needs to be a commitment to open and frequent communication as well. Better to over communicate than under in the beginning. Communication will lead to compromises and solutions that work for both people in the relationship.

    Thanks for giving me things to think about 🤔 Blessings to you GS🙏
