Like any other ordinary morning, Emily called to update me of her previous day. She had two bumpers. One was her boss, and the other was the person she was with for more than 30 years.
After our usual long conversation, I explained to her about the concept of bumpers and rephrased what Thick Nat Hahn said: “When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending.”
She understood and made her usual, "ah, so... I see." After lunch she called me back and reported me how she helped her boss heal. And the other one? She drove away and kept her eyes on the road. He is incurable.
