Happy Thoughts: December 15, 2020 at 12:51PM


It’s easy to get upset at someone when you don’t understand why they did something.

For example, if someone cut you off in traffic, you would find them rude and get annoyed. But, how about if you were the one to cut someone off because you misunderstood that they were letting you in? Now, cutting someone off doesn’t sound so wrong. You were only doing what you thought was right and that could have also been the case for the other person. When we better understand other’s “why”, it’s easier to be empathetic which is extremely important.

Of course, there are those who are rude for no good reason, but more often than not, everyone is just doing what they think is right. We all have a unique lens and understanding that is a great step towards empathy.
