Ever find yourself turning a blind eye? Not hard to do if you fear conflict, being singled out, not being part of what everyone else is doing, or even afraid of what the future would hold if you don’t turn that blind eye.
I am currently ready the book by Margaret Heffernan, ” Wilful Blindness” and I am astonished at the amount of wilful blindness is practiced and all the various reasons for this harmful behaviour.
I have always been accused of being too tenacious, some call me a “pain in the butt”. And yet this has gained me a lot of respect from people and has given me a reputation for addressing issues that most people are afarid to even whisper.
What are we all afraid off? Being fired, being poor, no friends? The truth will set you free, and those who don’t want to hear the truth are not worth your time.
Be kind, be generous and speak the truth. If we would all follow this simple advise, our word would not be so full of greed and fraud.
