There is nothing like a trying to get to the bottom of conflict amongst children. As an aunt of 11 nieces and nephews the story line usually begins with he said … she said. As I look forward to my trip home to visit my family and my new great-niece, I thought about how he said and she said can a vast amount of power, even when it comes to the direction we take in our lives. Once in college I was taking an advance Spanish course. While I minored in Spanish the vast majority of my course-mates were held majors and just returned from studying abroad in Mexico and Spain. As you can imagine, it was a tad challenging for me. Ok it more than that, it was hard! I couldn’t speak as well and I had to study more. My professor spoke to my advisor, and he said I should withdraw then she said I should and I agreed. But just this morning I realized I wasn’t failing and it was a great opportunity to improve my Spanish. But because he said and she said I walk away.
I wonder how many people on this journey with me walk away from the things they love and desired to accomplish because of a he said … she said moment. Think about it?
