“People suck”, she said.
“They do“, he agreed.
These 4 words stuck in my skull this morning, overheard on a late morning (slow) jog from my spot – across the soggy, stormy park across the street.
On a damp and drizzly day, especially – it’s easy to think that people suck.
I’ve spent a few hours with these 4 words – this casual conversation – ratting through my brain to see where it sticks.
It would be so easy to agree.
So easy to use this stark but simple statement – as a morning mantra to push and prod my way through the crowd.
But people are awesome, really.
That’s what I see.
Even with my head down, facing forward, just slogging my way through the day.
I see goodness and grace in unexpected faces and places, if only, I look again.
People don’t suck.
Sometimes we need to be reminded they do, to remember we don’t.
