If I do not want what you want, please try not to tell me that my want is
Or if I believe other than you, at least pause before you correct my view.
Or if my emotion is less than yours, or more, given the same
circumstances, try not to ask me to feel more strongly or weakly.
Or yet if I act, or fail to act, in the manner of your design for action, let me
I do not, for the moment at least, ask you to understand me. That will come
only when you are willing to give up changing me into a copy of you.
I may be your parent, your friend, or your colleague. If you will allow me
any of my own wants, or emotions, or beliefs, or actions, then you open
yourself, so that some day these ways of mine might not seem so wrong,
and might finally appear to you as right – for me. To put up with me is the
first step to understanding me. Not that you embrace my ways as right for
you, but that you are no longer irritated or disappointed with me for my
seeming waywardness. And in understanding me you might come to prize
my differences from you, and, far from seeking to change me, preserve and
even nurture those differences because you value what they bring to our
relationship and our team.
