It is so easy to get caught in our negative judgements and automatic thoughts that we don't see peoples pain or their story. If we are paying attention and listening, everyone has a story that will bring us to our knees.

Don’t Judge!
Everyone has a different life,lifestyle,etc! We need so very much to not judge others!
Judging others
I learned that our initial reactions to others are often not on target. Especially if we are judging someone who is acting out of fear or anxiety and we need to be empathetic to everyone’s situation. Remembering that no one person is better than anyone else. We all deserve respect and to be heard.
Perception and Perspective
I learned that our thoughts and emotions are initially created but our senses, in my case sight. That everyone has a story is a reminder for me to have that pause between what I see and what thoughts could emerge. Maybe at that moment I become wiser. Even kinder and happier.
Our story
I learned that I need to practice mindfulness over and over. I've done that before. Judging prematurely. Then again, I shouldn't be judging at all! This isn't a perfect world. I'm not perfect either. Your story brought to light thoughts of my own similar experiences. I always feel so badly afterwards! It also made me realize that although you are someone we look up to. You are a professional and well versed person in these matters. Yet, you offered a personal story to us showing that you aren't infallible. I so admire you and the way you speak. I'm able to connect and relate. You speak from your heart. Unfortunately, I probably would've come to the same conclusions as you did. Thank you for helping me work on my inner self and life skills.
