Compassion for our burdens

It would seem that, quite possibly, the ultimate measure of health in any community might well reside in our ability to stand in awe at what folks have to carry rather than in judgment at how they carry it. —Gregory Boyle

There is greater compassion in honestly witnessing the burdens those around us carry than there could ever be in judging them for how they carry those burdens.
(This applies to how we look at ourselves and our own burdens as well.)
