"Don't judge people. You never know what kind of battle they are fighting."


It's easy to judge others. It's easy to dismiss the concerns and troubles of others when we haven't experienced them before ourselves. There seems to be a lack of understanding towards others in this world. It's nothing new, it's always been there. Why not do something about it? Why not show some grace to one another? To give others the benefit of the doubt? We may not like what other people do, but they have their reasons for it. We're all just trying to do the best that we can with what we know to be true.

I'm reminded of a video where a man berates his mother who has Alzheimer's, because she is doing things that she shouldn't be doing (like driving or lighting fires in the house). Instead of judging and becoming angry, instead, try to understand why things are happening as they are. Try to see the other points of view. Try to be understanding of that loved one with their disease and how it affects them. If we do so, we may all get along a little bit better and make this world a better place.
