I am talking about stealing:
Haven’t we all seen or been the child whose inquisitiveness, creativity or happiness has been stomped out by well meaning teachers or parents to fit in? Is this theft?
We all know people in our lives either in work or at home who are energy vampires. They just suck the energy out of you! Along with the energy can be happiness and hope. Are they also stealing our souls?
What about the domineering spouse, family member or coworker who lays claim to our ideas, or wants credit for our ideas and achievements? Are they guilty of being a thief?
Consider the friend or loved one who tempts your resolve or spirit time and time again. Do they make remarks that shake your confidence? Are they stealing from you?
My answer is a resounding “YES”!
What is the solution to all this stealing? I propose kindness and tolerance.
What about you? Have you suffered from these thefts? Can you come up with a solution? The only acceptable stealing is on the baseball diamond.
