It's (probably) not about you.

I've heard people say that everybody is facing a battle that we don't know anything about.

If that is true, then it calls for kindness.

Everyone is facing a battle that the rest of us just knows nothing about.

I also think It's important to keep this in mind daily because, sometimes, when people react to something we have done or said, it isn’t about you (or me).

I have to remember that a lot actually. I have this reactivity that comes home to roost quite a bit. More often than not, I’ve “received” a negative signal someone else wasn’t really sending. Or I received it much louder than they intended.

Sometimes, we just take things a little too personal sometimes, don't we? (At least I do)

But: so many times, the words people use and the things they do are just them going through their own struggle.

And it's got nothing to do with us.

A soft answer turns away wrath,

but a harsh word stirs up anger. —Proverbs 15:1
