Protect

We want to protect others.

We don’t want to hurt feelings, share unpleasant truths, give negative feedback. We refrain from difficult conversations, and we let issues escalate until they become too big to be tackled. We rarely push. We almost never ask. We always assume it is not the right time.

We want to protect others. And by doing that, we protect ourselves.

It is a noble intention. Let’s just not take cover behind it every time we are not ready to leap.
