# 35 Reflection Common not Capable

Common not all are capable
By Mary K. Mennenga

 In common:
Hopes and dreams, love and sadness, fears and joy, loss and growth.
Life is capable of teaching us many things.
If we are willing to learn compassion.

Some aren't Capable of:
Actively listening
Holding back judgment until both points of view are understood. 
What was your motive for sharing this type of information with me.
I'm sure it wasn't meant to hurt me.

As for me:
Sharing my History is easy it's unable to hurt me.
Sharing feelings of pain, loss and emotions is much harder
For that is my heart
That now stays safely in my chest
Long ago I wore it on my sleeve
Learned how easily it could be bruised, crushed and nearly broken
Would have liked to have learned that lesson much sooner then I did
Oh well it all worked the way it was meant to anyway

This journey offers up many lessons, and the one about "wearing it on the sleeve" is one of the big ones. Only problem is, I am not always certain of the correct solution.

Judy, Thanks for stopping by:) As for a solution being correct. Life is something we learn as we grow. Nothing is certain and each choice made is a path not taken. Hind sight is always 20/20.mkm
