It's just my junk

We all have junk in our heads. This is mine.

Tune your ear in

Are you among the hoard of people who only listen to, follow or are led by people you like?
Are you a person who is willing to be stretched by people you don’t like as much?
I have been in communications for a long long time. I have experienced seasons of life where certain people rubbed me wrong so I didn’t listen to them… Joyce Meyer, anyone from Ohio State (lol), certain teachers at Fruitport High School, Muskegon Community College and way to many in the work force.. The reason I didn’t want to listen to them often was what they said, sometimes how they said it but usually it came down to who they were….
I have grown in my understanding of this in my life and praying and stretching myself to be a whole learner, not just I like this person learner.
I feel this is an issue that crosses denominational boundaries, secular boundaries and within the average home and workplace.
We do not have enough space to write down all the examples I have to share but a few are simple…
church… I don’t like that speaker.. so I skip
Work.. He or she is the boss.. so I ignore
School… well they are only doing it for the money… so I skip
Home.. she or he doesn’t give me what I want or listens to me the way I want … so I disengage.
Community… well that cop is crooked… so I speed

I am not sure where you are on the subject but I know it is an on going fight for me to find growth through every communication I have. I can no longer throw a fit and tantrum when I don’t get what I want or hear what I want to hear.
I challenge each reader to expand yourself, maybe not throw all those you like away but to add one you don’t. Maybe take a brief moment to hear them before you zombie out?
I don’t know about you, but I am done not learning through people I need to learn from.
