Thinking of others?
I’m sure we’ve all been guilty of looking in from the outside and making a judgement about another person without having all the facts.
Let’s take a look at George who perhaps shouts at everyone and people looking on think he’s rude and a problem. Then let’s dig deeper… George has learning difficulties and finds everything a struggle, he doesn’t understand social situations and he finds his school work a constant source of frustration.
It is human nature to behave according to how we feel. Many of us will understand being frustrated due to not being able to do something.
The fact is we encounter people every day in our lives and we don’t know what they are going through or what has happened to them. We don’t know of their struggles.
We should remember to be kind as there is usually a reason for ‘acting out’. A friendly smile for George’s Mum rather than a scowl may be enough to help her through another difficult day. 😊
