“If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.” ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
It’s so easy to judge each other from what we see on the outside. We forget that their difficult words and actions are likely driven by the pain and trauma of their history. If we could see the pain hidden beneath the surface of every person we encountered, it would re-frame our judgment of them entirely.
