IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT!
"If the shoe fits, wear it” is a commonly used expression that suggests that someone should accept a generalized remark or criticism by applying it to themselves, particularly when it describes them. Simply stated: Is what is being said characterize you? Yes or no. It’s easy when the comments are kind and flattering. What if the words reflect a truth that are not? No one should be offended by words that accurately describe or "fit" them! What is ironically sad is when people deny what accurately describes them. Admittance goes hand in hand with acceptance. Acceptance puts us on the front line to confront our shortcomings and do something about them. We know what they are better than most - even if we don't admit it! Thus, do we wear the shoes or take them off and do something about it? Tights shoes are uncomfortable. As your feet ache, so does your life! Let’s step out and make the needed changes that will make us better! Shall we?
