Assume everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
It can change your perspective and make you a little more hooman in the process.
It can calm you down if you have people around you causing you all kinds of issues.
It can help you come up with different options and solutions. Maybe you won't waste so much time being upset.
Instead of thinking, "whatta lazy jerk," consider that they must have something going on.
And a lot of times, you'll be right.
If there's one thing I've learned from working with people on a very personal level it's that.
I've been ignored a lot over the years when I reach out to members who miss the gym.
I've sometimes banged my head against the wall trying to help with nutrition or lifestyle.
I used to think they decided they don't wanna gym or try anymore. Or I'm not doing a good job or they must not like us.
That's some self-centered thinking right there.
Now I wonder what they must have going on. I realize that something must be wrong. And that approach has been 1000x more helpful.
Everyone has stuff. Sometimes it comes out in behavior or just not showing up. What you see probably doesn't have anything to do with you. Peel back those layers a bit.
Reach out. Be human and try to be helpful. Even if it doesn't work, you'll be better off for taking this approach first.
