Being Seventy: Three

Another meaningful quote from Being Seventy:

Page 42: It is rather frightening to think of the unknown lives that one has touched. One hears only about those where the touch has been beneficent, but what of those whom one may, unequally unconsciously, have harmed?

This one stopped me in my tracks and has continued to haunt me. 

Truly, I'd never thought about that.

Wow - profound - and stopping in your tracks worthy, for certain. Need to think about this one for a while . . .

For someone filled with compassion, this is a tough thought nugget. I can see why it stopped you in your tracks.
Just a reminder to help ease your mind: Some of the ones we have harmed can be easy to figure out. Make amends with them if safe to do so, if not make amends with yourself for it. Some others we may have harmed was because of our boundary making. If you can say you are sorry, that you know this may hurt do so, but please keep the boundary, toxic people usually stay toxic. And there maybe some we will never know, those I ask for forgiveness and guidance during my talks with God.
NNP we are never too old for growth.
