“He’s going to screw it up.” “She can’t do it.”
I hear this every day. I have heard things like this all my life.
It saddens me.
It saddens me because as hurtful as it is to hear it, saying it hurts more. Saying it makes people small, petty and arrogant. Saying it makes people isolated and angry. Saying it prevents people from reaching their potential.
Giving your time is predicated on a recognition that people deserve help. If you’re only thoughts towards other people is that they are incapable and inferior, then you’ll never find the joy of giving.
Maybe when you say, “She can’t do it,” you’re really saying, “I can’t do it.”
