This One Is For You. And Me.

There comes a time in your life when you realize that what you thought was real...isn't real at all.
A time when you realize that you have no right to have an opinion on anyone else's life, because what you see, is what they want you to see...and perhaps it isn't reality.
It's easy to judge someone for their choices. You are on the outside, looking in, but no matter how well you think you "see"...your view is always clouded.
You only know someone from the moment you met. You don't know the life they lived prior to that, or how what they went through in their life shaped who they have become. How they react to circumstances in their life, may be drastically different to how you would react.
Unless you can live some one's life, see what they see, feel what they feel and hurt like they hurt...you can't fully comprehend the trials they endure.
