IF YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE ANSWER, DON’T ASK THE QUESTION

How are you doing?

You ask that question every day, don’t you?

And you expect the person you ask to say he or she is doing well.

But what if he or she is not doing well, and doesn’t want to lie?

Do you brush the person off, and then label him or her as a complainer?

Or do you listen anyway, not giving unsolicited advice, not scolding?

Do you listen anyway, understanding the value of listening–that listening to a person is the best thing you can do for a person?

When you ask someone how he or she is doing, don’t blame him or her if you get the honest answer you don’t expect.

If you can’t handle the answer, don’t ask the question.
