A friend and I had a conflict the other weekend or a misunderstanding with each other at the very least. It was over something I had said but had not discussed with each other until that point.

I will never forget what she said to me. My friend said, I know your heart and I know you would never say or do something to intentionally harm me. I know you and therefore I’m not upset. Then we talked and took the time to hear each other. What we found was a chance to understand how perception can cause any of us to stumble. The ironic thing is we both mentioned a different example over something she had said that had effected me. She remembered me saying I understood her heart over the words.

I know you more than perception. Then we laughed, then we smiled. It’s a risk any of us take writing about life experiences. Thank you for knowing me beyond the words. ❤️
