Compassion

     Once the human race understands that life is not always black and white, then maybe we will gain some compassion in this world. We are always thinking that if someone is not “Just Like” us then they aren’t “Normal”.
Think about this for a minute,  “We have no idea what is going on, or what went on, behind closed doors yesterday, or today.”  When we see someone that is ragged, or angry, slow or just inattentive, we ask things like, “Where did this  person come from?”
We as human beings are too nosy, judgmental, and/or fake. We are too concerned about situations that have no direct affect on us. We are too selfish to try and gain the ability of empathy.
I challenge you to release your shallow self , and open your mind to someone you find nothing in common with. Listen to what they have been through in their lifetime. You may not gain a friend, but you just might gain some insight on how other people came to be who they are. While you are at it, how about digging for some compassion.  Compassion can go a long way in ones life. You just listening, can be considered showing compassion to a stranger. That compassion could give them hope that there are good people in this world, and make them strive to do better. Your compassion could keep a person from taking his or her own life. Your compassion could give a person the will to survive, when all will was lost.
Mental Thought : Always try and put yourself in someone else’s shoes, if only for a moment…….Normal is merely a setting on the dryer….
