Hello beautiful people, so this post is supposed to serve as a reminder to something we already know, but often forget. You know how it has been said overtime that it is imperative to treat everyone we meet well because we never know what they are passing through; It still hasn’t changed. That girl who smiles at you every day and always has the heaviest of makeup on is going through something unimaginable. But she tries everything in her power to not look like what she’s going through because if she did…….

I was chatting with a friend, and she kept lamenting about some challenges she was currently facing. I told her I would take everything she was going through over what I was passing through. “What could you possibly be passing through; you have everything all of us are struggling for. You are not job hunting, you have started your masters and your parents are even there to support you.” She said. I laughed, and told her just one of my burdens and she was speechless. She called me up immediately and gave a few words of encouragement. Then she said “You are always normal and funny there’s no way I could have imagined”. I told her, I had already put every single one of my burdens in God’s hands and worrying would only be a waste of time and besides looking like what I’m passing through won’t change the situation one bit.

Every single person you meet is carrying one burden or the other, some lighter than others, but most times we overlook this fact and draw our conclusions about them based on what we see. Never assume a person has it all going well by what you see, trust me you’d be shocked to know what that girl who smiles 24/7 has on her plate. Finally, we don’t have to see/know what people are going through to treat them right. So, “be kind, for everyone you meet is carrying a great burden/ fighting a hard battle” – Plato/ Philo / Ian Maclaren.

UNTIL NEXT TIME…. BE KIND TO EVERY SINGLE PERSON YOU MEET…
