I saw this on Twitter recently and felt compelled to share it. On more than one occasion I’ve judged someone’s actions before realizing they were going through something difficult in their life, causing them enough pain to affect their behavior.
Going forward I’m going to do my best to keep this in mind. Besides, even if they’re just a “mean person”, why not be kind to them and maybe your kindness will rub off. But in my experience, the mean people had battles early in their lives that made them that way, so even they deserve kindness.
Ok, back to work :)
