I wish it were really possible to "walk a mile in some one's shoes."
I would love the opportunity to see things from a different perspective, at times.
I try very, very hard to be a non-judgemental person. I'm not perfect and I don't always succeed...but, it is very important to me. It's important to me that I live my life that way and important that I become that role model for my children. I want them to live in a home where they are shown that love and acceptance for everyone, is the appropriate attitude.
It's hard when not everyone feels that way. Perhaps if I were able to "walk a mile in their shoes", I could see why. I could begin to understand what makes them act a certain way...so that I know the best way to react to it.
Is it fear? Is that why people respond with negativity to certain obstacles or situations? Because they fear that, which they don't understand?
I don't understand how responding with negativity, or the with drawl of love, makes the situation any better. Love isn't accepting a person only when they fit your standards. Love is accepting them, through all the choices that they may make. Even if you don't agree with them.
