Wake Up Wednesday: Everyone is fighting

be-kind-for-everyone-you-meet-is-fighting-a-hard-battle

We all get a little angry from time to time. The checkout lane is moving too slow, you get cut off by another driver, someone parks their car poorly next to yours.

The thing is that we are all fighting hard battles. Before you react next time to the car that is driving too fast, take a second, and remind yourself that you do not know their situation. Maybe their rushing to the hospital to kiss their mother good bye for the last time. Maybe their in a hurry to a job interview that they absolutely need in order to keep their family afloat. You just don’t know. Instead of making their day worse by making sure they know you’re angry at them…choose patience, compassion, and kindness.

We all are fighting a hard battle.
