maggie, nikki, and re all agree that i am and can be a very rigid person. for them plans, expectations and decisions all get heavy doses of compassion for people when things come up, or things happen that mean things have to change. for them, it's about the person involved more than it's about the plans, or the expectations.
re says it doesn't occur to her to resent her mother for the plays she has to sit through because the plays aren't about re - they are about her mother and it is something her mother enjoys and something her mother values and 3 hours of re's time is worth seeing her mother happy and giving her mother that moment of value.

I need more compassion in my expectations and plans.
