WeaKly QuoTe: Sometimes Weekly, sometimes Weakly, sometimes not so Weakly

"One of the signature mistakes with empathy is that we believe we can take our lenses off and look through the lenses of someone else.  We can’t. Our lenses are soldered to who we are.  What we can do, however, is honor people’s perspectives as truth even when they’re different from ours.  That’s a challenge if you were raised in majority culture—white, straight, male,  middle-class, Christian—and you were likely taught that your perspective is the correct perspective and everyone else needs to adjust their lens.  Or, more accurately, you weren’t taught anything about perspective taking, and the default—My truth is the truth—is reinforced by every system and situation you encounter." Brené Brown  

"Harmony comes from an orchestra only when its members make a concerted effort, so harmony in marriage also requires a concerted effort.  That effort will succeed if each partner will minimize personal demands and maximize actions of loving selflessness.  Harmony in marriage comes only when one esteems the welfare of his or her spouse among the highest of priorities.  When that really happens, a celestial marriage becomes a reality, bringing great joy in this life and in the life to come." Russell M Nelson
