As I peel back the layers I find microscopic truths. My truths…
Intent: Just because I didn’t intend to cause hurt, doesn’t discount anyone else’s perception of their hurt.
Sorry to burst all those Zen bubbles out there….It’s all good theory until we deal with humans and those complex and conflicting emotions.
Good intent doesn’t cut it if we refuse to entertain the consequences of our actions in advance on one hand, but proceed to excuse bad behavior with our “good intent” on the other.
I call bs and a convenient cop-out on this one.
