Daily Dose for the Mind

Do you often feel lonely at work or in school? Perhaps your heart is closed off to those around you.
“I don’t get her.” “I’m better than her.” “We’re on different wavelengths.” If you think this way, how could you not be lonely? Open your heart, and have a cup of coffee with her. You will soon see that she is not that different from you. When you open up about your hurt and sorrow, I feel grateful that you’ve turned to me for support. It’s as though I am meeting you in the most sacred chamber of your heart.

Politicians always say what sounds good. But what they say does not always resonate with us because their words are coming from their head, not from their heart. Speak from your heart, which is tender, simple, and true. People will understand you, and like you. If you think you are either superior or inferior to someone, an invisible wall goes up between you. Treat him like an old friend you haven’t seen in a while. When you let your guard down, so will he. The end of a sushi roll, with the filling sticking out, is often tastier than a piece sliced neatly from the middle. Someone slick and well-put-together can come across as cold and alienating, while an average guy without pretense is more genuine and attractive.
