A degree of sensitivity is necessary when we make judgements on situations and people in our lives or those we encounter in our day. We never really know the space from which another is coming and despite appearances we need to to take a deep breath and realize life isn’t necessarily the perfect picture it may seem. I think at times people judge situations and circumstances without realizing in any way the depth of the situation or the complexity involved. I’m certain I have done the same thing without realizing it.

So next time someone’s life seems ideal to you or easier than your own, take a step back and think again. Everyone has their challenges, responsibilities and pain to bear. It isn’t always as it seems.
