THE JOURNEY ✨
If we all judged and compared less and practised more empathy and compassion I honestly think the world would be a better place.
Everyone is on their own journey and has their own story. Nothing is personal and it took me years to realise this. That guy yelling at you in traffic because you are going too slow, that lady who picked on what you were wearing, the person who said you are this or that. Each of those people have a reason why they are acting the way they are and generally it comes from a place of hurt at some point in their life. Or you may trigger something in them that they are learning to work through or maybe haven’t yet realised they could work through. .
So really that moment of reaction, judgement, comparison that is being put onto us is actually all about them.
If you find yourself reacting, judging, comparing… take a moment to practice some empathy for someone else or maybe even for yourself in that moment because maybe they are bringing up something in you that you haven’t yet found peace with.
We are all here on this earth doing the best we know how with the tools that we have. You never really know what someone has been through to be showing up in a particular way.
And please know that although we can practice empathy it is just as important to set healthy boundaries and standards of how we allow others to treat us, by reminding ourself to not take it personally, make your boundaries clear and remove yourself from the situation if need be. .
At the end of the day everyone just wants to feel love and connection whether that’s through acceptance, acknowledgement, understanding or something else. .
