Huh? Twitter? Quote?

“As I get older I’ve learned to listen to people rather than accuse them of things”. Po Bronson

Here’s my challenge with Po’s thought – doesn’t anybody hear the echos of codependency?

“Oh, Uncle Joel, he sure likes his beer”, people say lovingly about a family member’s obvious addiction.

Everyone lives with it. Everyone is privately aware of it. Everyone acts like it’s not true. Everyone says nothing.

I sort of feel like accusing them all – of saying nothing, doing nothing.

Or maybe it’s better to let loved ones travel that path. Then no one would be guilty of accusing anyone of anything. How cool is that?
