Fred Rogers aka “Mr Rogers” was a very intentional man in his pursuit to communicate value to people especially young people. Here are my Takeaways from watching the documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor”:

  1. Silence is key to my growth. My insecurity is influenced by a constant message. Everywhere I go, culture is telling us to do this, become this, wear this, act like this, talk like this, be loud, grab attention…these things make you lovable and accepted. Yet intentionally loving myself, can be in silence with myself. I don’t have to do anything to be loved or accepted.
  2. I am worthy of Love. It doesn’t mean I am given anything for free, like a job, money, or recognition, but because I am Me, I am worthy to be loved.
  3. This message of unconditional love is not without critics. “The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness does not understand.
