We live in a #disposable culture where the next best thing is waiting just around the corner. Anything that we break is an opportunity to replace it with something newer, shinier, and better.
As long as we have the cash to buy the next best thing, we can treat everything we own as disposable – especially as it becomes more and more convenient to replace the old with the new.
Unfortunately, this #mindset of disposability is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Once we start believing that something is disposable, we treat it as disposable.
We become careless, negligent, and outright abusive towards the products we own – confident that we can replace or upgrade them when needed.
But what happens when that same mindset permeates into our #relationships ? If we treat people as disposable, they become disposable. However, if we recognize them as irreplaceable, our thoughts, behaviors, and actions shift too.
Seeing value in all things requires just a tiny mindset shift. The rest quickly follows.
