So much of my life is driven by this desire not to fail. Sometimes the actions we have carry simple meanings or big meanings. And at times being an American living in Mexico a simple gesture of the hand can mean a far different thing. Sometimes my actions are arrogant and selfish. For this I am trying to do better. Humility is difficult at times. It’s one thing to be yourself. It’s another to be disrespectful of human emotions. Cultural differences play a huge role in perceptions.
