Everyone has a story

Behind the face of everyone you see, there is a life they’ve lived that you can’t see.

You wouldn’t know why someone is how they are, be it positive or negative. You may like them or you may not.

And no, I’m not saying you can’t be mad or annoyed, bewildered or dumbfounded… You are entitled to everything you feel. What I’m saying is, after the feeling, take a step back and consider that there are things going on that you don’t know about.

  • Heighten your awareness.
  • Be more understanding.
  • Practice compassion.
  • Cut people some slack.
  • Try a little kindness and empathy.

You may not be able to SEE what they go through, but it doesn’t mean it’s not there.

And no, I’m not saying to put others’ needs before your own. And if someone is toxic, yes, do stay away from them. At the end of the day, there is a reason why we are all the way we are.

    @cn_tn123 Some people are “unforgivable”. But the serenity comes when you accept what they’ve done… (my two cents)
