I have a rule, if you don’t want me around, I’m not around. Life is too short to be where you aren’t wanted or necessary.
There is no way to be effective with someone who doesn’t accept your presence, either in substance or style. So don’t bother.
Opening the mind to what could be is a decision. I firmly believe that. Closing the mind is as well. What is is in front of us. See that first. Then see what will be.
To shared visions.
