We all struggle with areas of life. We may be vulnerable in different areas of life than another person.
As humans, we tend to try to shield our areas of vulnerability from others, and one particularly common way to do so is to go on the offensive – attacking another person for their struggles or differences. We may even end up cutting down our friends or our spouse – the very people that we would otherwise be spending time building up.
A key way in helping build up our relationships with others is to accept that just because they have different struggles and vulnerabilities than us does not make us better than them or them better than us. We are different, not better or worse.
In our accepting of our differences, we are free to begin to stop hiding from our vulnerabilities and empowered to begin to deal with our difficulties in a constructive manner.
