I thought these words I have been carrying in my wallet for many years might be worth sharing.
When you judge people remember one overriding axiom.
Everyone is having a hard time; everyone is insecure; everyone is hassled.
Everyone is tired…. we all need more sleep. Everyone wishes he had more courage, more money and better social skills.
Everyone wants more glamour in his life, and we all desperately need more laughter.
Few can figure out how they ended up living the life they lead.
Don’t be mislead by flippant talk; it’s a battle for everyone ….. Give people a break. it’s not easy doing a life.
– Joshua Halberstam in “Everyday Ethics”
