opinionated

Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding. The highest form of knowledge is empathy, for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another’s world. It requires profound purpose larger than the self kind of understanding.

– Bill Bullard

seeking others and their pain, their struggle, their hope, and their dreams is the only way to truly understand yourself. as a know-it-all, i have struggled with this most of my life; seeking to only be understood and validated. turning the table to understand and let another persons hope reside in me, even if just for a brief moment hopefully will help my heart grow and my ego shrink. #workinprogress
