Stop. And think about what it really means to walk in someone else’s shoes.
What have the been through? What have the seen? What do they struggle with? What are they in pain about?
When we want to be impatient with the grocery store clerk who doesn’t know the code for bananas- ask yourself what their day might be like? And if it were your sister, how would you like someone to treat her when she doesn’t know a code. When someone is mean to us or tried to make us feel small-ask yourself who made them wrong in their life?
We forget, but we are all the same. We all want to feel loved and important. But we so often forget that.
And what if people walked in your shoes? What would you want them to know about you?
Perspective is a powerful thing. Let’s use it for good.
