It’s so easy to misunderstand others and judge them according to their behaviors. Since I have become passionate about telling my story and encouraging others to do the same, I marvel at the strength and fortitude of the human spirit.
When I take time to hear a person’s story I always find a place to connect with them in their place of pain. Many times Jonas and I will form an opinion about someone, and then we quickly remind ourselves, “If we knew their story…”. That line always compels us to have compassion instead of an opinion.
