As I develop my intuition, I’m sometimes left wondering about the road not taken. For example, this weekend, I spent a significant amount of time with someone whose word choices betray a need to catalog and judge others. I spent very little energy calling her on it, though I have repeatedly done so in the past. This time, my intuition told me to save my breath. Was it because I need that strength for my own, currently very demanding, internal process? Or perhaps she needs to hear it from someone besides me. Or none of the above.
All I know is that being around it all the time wore me out and left me feeling sad for her.
