Just for today I will remember that everyone has challenges of their own
Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something and has lost something.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
We all face challenges of one kind or another. Sometimes it’s a challenge for me to get out of bed in the mornings, especially when it’s still dark out.
Difficulties will occur in everyone's life. We are typically much more aware of our own difficulties than those of others. This can easily breed unwarranted envy. But knowing that everyone has challenges in life can make your own easier to cope with.
Treat each person as if their heart was breaking. More often than not, you will be right.
Everyone has their own demons and is fighting their own fight. You don’t always know why they have been mean to you or why they have said or done certain things. Assumptions made about others can be false and most of the time they are. Be aware of the fact that each person you meet could be struggling in his or her own way and being kind might remind them that they, too, should be kind.
When you can be the sunshine in someone's life, or the warm rain, why would you be the cold north wind?
