To step into someone else’s shoes for a second and think about their struggles makes you a more mature person. There’s the saying that everyone is fighting their own battles and I try to carry this philosophy with me all the time.

That boy that has anger issues? He has an alcoholic father at home. That girl that makes fun of people for being overweight? She’s insecure herself. That teacher that everyone hates? She’s grieving the loss of her child that passed away.

There could be 100s of different explanations why someone is behaving in a weird manners. So before you label someone as lazy or unmotivated based on the situation they’re in, think about the possible trials they’ve faced in their lives.

Remember! Not everyone has equal access to opportunities.
