a friend of mind shared this realization to me a while ago, and i think about this alot. something along the lines of “no need to worry so much. people dont think about you very much; they are too busy thinking and worrying about themselves.”
i dont mean to be contradictory, but thinking about this idea in relationship to this goal i wonder if being more open and honest to and about yourself that you want out of situation IS being more considerate of others. considering yourself – straightforward and honest (really honest, that is, easier said than done) – is the larger part of being considerate of others.
