Run your fingers through my soul

I came across this quote a few weeks ago, and it really spoke to me. Such powerful words, a powerful thought, and, of course, an impossibility. You can never see the world through the eyes of another, you can never walk a mile in someone else’s shoes.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could? Wouldn’t it be easier to understand why people do what they do, feel the way they feel, to be empathetic.  It’s so easy to judge people, to judge another person’s situation, but you never really know the full reasons behind anything. And that can be very frustrating!

When I found this quote I wanted to send it to everyone in my life. I didn’t of course, but today I’m going to post it here, and I’m going to try instead to bear it in mind whenever I deal with another person, to try to be more empathetic. And hope in turn, that others are more empathetic towards me.

    I almost cried. And that’s what I need people to understand: sometimes I just cry. I don’t know why, it just happens. It’s good to know others need people to just understand sometimes too.

      Thank you so much Sarah. I understand that too.. sometimes you just need to cry. I believe crying is very good for you, certainly better than holding in emotions xx

    I have often thought of this! How wonderful it would be to see the world through someone else’s eyes – and to have people see the world through our own eyes. It’d be amazing. I think you are right – it would help us be more understanding & empathetic! Thanks so much for sharing with candid cuddles x
