There are a lot of good people out there, but there are probably more in your orbit that simply don’t care or worse.
You can have this problem or that.
If they even “give you the time of day,” people will nod, tell you how sorry they are, and probably relate some of their own misery.
The good people try to see if and how they may be able to help.
The others really don’t want to know, certainly don’t care, and just see you as baggage in the way.
But everyone has their problems!
If only people could look with compassion on each other.
We all struggle with our demons in this world.
Of course, we can’t let troubles get in the way of our doing what we need to do.
But people can make all the difference in just providing a compassionate ear and being willing to open themselves up to understanding others and helping each other or making reasonable accommodations so people can help themselves.
Listen, we all have our day–wouldn’t it be nice to be that person who is kind and generous to others and have others treat us that way too.
