Life has opposites. It’s how we make sense of the things.
You might say that we need to experience the opposite to make sense of the ‘other’.
When you talk to someone who finds themselves in unfortunate circumstances, do you empathise through being able to relate?
In order to have some compassion, do we need to have experienced something ‘bad’ to understand why someone has a bad attitude or why someone behaves the way they do?
Your answer might be different to mine.
But let’s understand one thing together:
Experiencing more of life, whether personally or through observing another person or situation, might help us to have some more compassion.
We are all living in this world together.
We might be just one person.
We might be just one individual.
We might think that we’re ‘just’ one.
…But we might be a collective with lots of similar thoughts, beliefs, experiences, observations.
We might have been told along our life journey that we ‘can’t’ do something, ‘can’t’ be something, ‘can’t’ believe something, ‘can’t’ say something.
…that we just ‘can’t’.
Well here’s the thing that you might do well to remember:
You are as big as you want to be.
You are mighty.
Has anyone ever told you that you ‘can’t’ only for you to prove them wrong? Tell me about your ‘mighty’ moment in the comments below. I’d love to hear about it…
