Insider? Outsider? Depends.

Is it better to be on the inside looking out, or the outside looking in? A good question for challenging your #emotional intelligence.  Three related laughs:

Hugs can be prickly use #emotionalintelligence to know when to hug.

STAY STRONG

The worm not recognizing itself is an Emotional Fitness reminder that as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn noted, “The battle line between good and evil runs through the heart of every man.      ‘

Not thinking about the good and the bad in others and in ourselves leaves us at the mercy of evil.  A little caution, a little less eagerness to be an insider, a little less judgment of those we see as outsiders makes you a wiser, better, and safer person.

For all you do to share and care, thank you.  If you like what I say “clap your hands and show it” meaning share, like, or comment, you will help at least two people — me and you; hopefully you will also help some others.
