Working in behavioral health required me to grow as an individual, I had to step outside of my own bubble of experience and realize that the experiences of others are different and have had a major impact on the individual I'm talking to. My own experiences as the son of a single parent who grew up in poverty shaped me as well.
My point? We should all do more to listen to others and work together to come up with solutions to better out communities. Are their individuals who want to harm or kill others in our communities? Yes. So what can we do to intervene? Are their law enforcement officers who shouldn't have a gun and a badge because they are dangerous? Yes. So what are we going to do to intervene? Interventions require awareness of a problem and immediate action. Something we struggle with as a nation.
“The comfort zone is a psychological state in which one feels familiar, safe, at ease, and secure. If you always do what is easy and choose the path of least resistance, you never step outside your comfort zone. Great things don’t come from comfort zones.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
YES. Perfectly said.
