We all have blind spots in our lives. There are things in our lives that others can see that we can’t. The truth is: We will never grow beyond the blind spots in our lives.
We need people who will speak the truth in love to us. We need people who care enough about us that they will confront our blind spots.
Most people will never get to the point where they allow people to speak into their lives. Most of us hide behind a facade and we ignore each others blind spots.
It is only as we allow people to speak into our lives that we are able to grow deeper in our relationships with them.
6 practical ways to confront people’s blind spots
1. Don’t confront if you are not willing to be confronted.
2. Don’t talk about them; talk to them.
3. Don’t do it harshly.
4. Don’t do it hastily.
5. Tell them what they are doing right before you tell them what they are doing wrong.
6. Share your own faults before pointing out others.
May you have the courage to allow people to speak into your life and may you have the courage to confront others.
Do you have anyone in your life who loves you enough to confront your blind spots?
