Why do we tolerate so much? Yes, really, why do we put up with lots of items, big or small, that are causing upset in our life?
In many instances, at least this is what quite a few coaching clients have suggested they were doing. Alternative approaches are not even considered until we begin to reflect on our life.
So often we seem to move through each day as if on automatic pilot. Nuisances and irritations are almost expected and little thought is given to resolving them. Instead, we tolerate them, deal with them on a temporary basis, rarely thinking to go to the root cause and do something tangible about them.
Why do we tolerate so much? As we don’t appear to be taking control of aspects of life under our authority, on a grand scale, maybe we should be asking who is profiting from the constant tensions and inequalities filling daily news reports?
So many ‘unacceptable behaviours’ – taking the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a benchmark for ‘acceptable behaviours’ – could be stopped in a relatively short time if there was the joint will to do it.
