A saying I came across the other day went like this;

“If I can hold the door open for someone, that does not mean that I need to have someone then open the next door for me”

Read this a couple of times and think about how one interprets this.

How many times have we opened the door for someone, or given way to traffic only to then not have this returned back on the next occasion?

Does this mean that the next time someone wants to turn out of a side road in traffic, we ignore them and don’t let them in?

Or how about when you are rushing into the office and others are behind you (perhaps even some who have not held the door open for you the day before).

Do we just let the door close in their face and think to ourselves “serves them right”?

Showing compassion to others, regardless of if we receive it back, is where our own self compassion begins.

Try if for yourself and see what gives you more true value to your own self……Holding The Door Open for others helps Holding The Door Open for yourself.
