If you have someone in your life who keeps talking about the same thing repeatedly that makes you think, oh not again, why can’t we just put this to rest . . . Well, I had this realization that we all have these ‘stuck records’ in our heads, not always voicing them . . . But if you happen to be the ears to someone else’s stuck record, try to set aside your irritation and replace it with compassion as much as you can because what you’re hearing is only the tip of the iceberg of their daily suffering. This feeling of compassion will also help ease your own suffering from your own stuck records.
