What if that person who honked at you two minutes ago just found out they had cancer?
What if that driver who like a slippery little snake stole your parking spot closest to the stores door just got the news that her son was killed in Afghanistan?
What if that doctor who made you feel unheard or unimportant just learned that another patient of hers just died, and that patient was her father?
What if that homeless person who just asked for a dollar for a beer is homeless because he lost his mother and father when he was just a child … and the system just couldn’t help “fix”his mind?
There are so many reasons why people behave the way they do. It’s usually not because they are jerks or worthless or inconsiderate. Usually it’s so much more than that.
Who knows … maybe once upon a time one of these people were you or me.
What if we stopped seeing the offense and started looking at the person? What a different way to look at life, what a different world we would see.
