What do you say when someone totally surprises you with their words and actions?
When they are generous and kind in ways that they don’t need to be, when they go above and beyond what they’re required to do.
I almost overlooked that it would have taken this person effort and care to handle the situation the way that they did.
I was too busy walking around with my hands in my pockets, refusing to be vulnerable despite this person creating the ideal setting for me to do so.
But I later realised that the way I had acted was a little ungrateful and it had tainted the whole interaction.
I really wish I’d had simply said ‘Thank you for trying!’
