It was an interesting way to begin my work day. Someone called with a question that I did not have an answer to. It was system I don’t have and I am not sure why the call came to me, and I offered another number.
The response was “What good are you?”
Today it went straight to my heart. I “felt” it.
I replied “You are correct. I have no earthly value.”
There are days when the words we choose really make a difference in someone else’s day. It made me stop and wonder how many times my words hurt someone in that way. I shouldn’t have let it hit my heart. It was a stranger and yet today it did.
So now some six hours into my work day I still am feeling blue. That is not the person’s fault who said it, that is my fault for not letting it go. Personal responsibility could truly change the world.
