Perhaps the saying should go - "Be a Bridge" ... not "Build a Bridge".
I struggle to separate my emotions from my reactions...just as most people would.
However, I'm learning that if I want to move forward and still 'maintain' - I need to bridge the gap of communication...
Me...I need to accept that responsibility.
It may not always work.
It definitely will not always be easy.
And it most assuredly will not always be accepted...
That being said, I can only assume responsibility for my own actions.
What are some of the things that will widen the gap if we are not self aware?
Just to name a few...
So instead of contributing to the gap in relationships...be the bridge.
