the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.
Sometimes I sit in wonder at people sitting up high on their pedestals,
looking down at people who are suffering.
They sit in their ivory towers making judgements about things they know nothing about.
Not all people who suffer are victims.
Many fight, every single day, to be ok.
Blessed are they, not to have that fight.
If only it was that easy as hitting a switch to stop the pain inside your head.
Stop, for just one minute before you pass judgement. Dig deep inside and look for empathy, compassion, basic human decency.
"Judging is preventing us from understanding a new truth. Free yourself from the rules of old judgments and create the space for new understanding." Steve Maraboli
