you know that old expression "put yourself in the other persons shoes"
i do it all the time when I'm with my girlfriend. I try to think of the situation we're in, in her point of view EVEN if it doesn't really matter, I think it still helps to see how she sees it, because I think it helps her to feel more well understood which of course that's all everyone ever wants, is to be understood, right?
its difficult to do this, trust me, but I do try and I think that's what matters the most.
im talking about people who think religious people are mentally ill. when obviously we're not. I'm jewish. but

Taking the thoughts, emotions and struggles of others into consideration before undertaking a specific action like being a D-bag because their quiet for example, is important for one's development as a person. Almost every day I look around and can't help but try to figure people out, some people who appear to have a "good" life don't really skip through green pastures. Some people have a hard time accepting themselves, not out of a sense of self-confidence, but a past misdeed or self-perceived misdeed. Some people just don't find any peace in life and live under a cloud.
But understanding others is something that comes only from experience or maturity. That's why most teenagers would be seen in a sense of idiocy in terms of reaching out to other people, since they lack the maturity to make such an action. Idk, am I making sense?
