21 – The Behaviour Isn’t The F***ing Person

By |2021-08-31T01:13:52-06:00August 31st, 2021|Uncategorized|0 Comments

In this episode the guys talk about the importance of separating behaviour and opinion from the person.

People aren’t bad people simply because they don’t agree with us, perhaps we should try and understand the world from their perspective, rather than simply tell them they are wrong. Once we understand that other person’s perspective, then we can work with them to meet a common goal. Don’t simply call them an f***ing idiot because they don’t see things the way you do! Remember, in the words of Brene Brown - “People are hard to hate close up. Move in.”
