We never realize how much we don’t understand others until we realize how hard it is to understand ourselves.
We often make way better decisions for others than we can make for ourselves. We pass judgement on people and their current/past situations, before we’ve even half way been there. Then when we are there, we tend to resist/resent the people we once passed judgement on because we end up just like them or worse.
It’s important to just understand yourself first, what you want and who you want to be. Accept every experience as one to be grateful for because without it, we’d be nothing. It’s also important to know that you determine your heights, and at times encouraging others can help us encourage ourselves.
Take a second to step away from your current situation and wrap your mind around all the way you’ve approached someone else’s situation. Are you similar to them in some ways, and how are you different? No person thinks exactly like another. You’ll always feel some type of way towards the decisions of others, be its important to just observe and not so much be opinionated, unless you’d be able to take those opinions yourself.
People are their own worst critics, they never want to believe what anyone else is saying: whether its hurtful, truthful, or even critical. It’s hard to hear. With our words being our strongest weapons, we must master the art of knowing what to say, when to say it and how to say it.
Hurt is hurt, pain is pain, but until we start to understand each other, none of this will ever look, sound or feel the same.
Be real with yourself, and humble yourself enough to understand others, and how to approach them. Then and only then will we understand ourselves.
