THE BORROWER - 120/365
"Can I borrow your values? I don't have any of my own right now....I used to but I gave them to someone else and they passed them on to who knows who and now I don't have any idea where they are."
Like a thumb print or a set of teeth...no two people have the exact same values. Yet, there are times when I might think less of someone because theirs doesn't match up with mine.
Perhaps richer, more meaningful relationships can be experienced if I simply spend less time trying to impose my own values onto others and more time trying to understand theirs.
How do you value another person's "values?"
