33. Nothing Personal
After the training I read the evaluations. Most people had enjoyed the training. One person had skipped the rating scales to write me a short note: “Sorry if I seem angry today. It has nothing to do with you. I had to put my cat down yesterday. I wanted to take the day off, but I used up all my sick/vacation days battling cancer. My cat was my constant companion throughout my illness and I miss her. Next week I hope to be in a better frame of mind.”
I had assumed the scowling lady was angry because she didn’t want to be at my training. Reluctantly, I admitted to myself I had judged her based on assumptions.
Today I won’t assume I know how people feel, or why they might feel that way.
