Being kind to unkind people can sometimes be a challenge for me. When I see a mother yelling at her child I want to go up to her and shake her. I have to remind myself that she may be hurting. She may be hurting because she has not had enough sleep or she is working 2 jobs or she may not have enough money to buy food, or her husband may have just left her with 3 kids to support. I always have to stop, take a breath and try and put myself in their shoes. I do think that when people are being unkind or angry it is because they are hurting and in an odd way, reaching out for help. What do you think?
