The 1st step of a 1000 miles in anothers shoes
My pledge is to put out my hand to others and walk a 1000 miles in their shoes.
So many times we walk by others on the street and don't take a second glance. Why? Because we are stuck in our own minds not able to see past the wall we put up.
Before we can really understand what anything or anyone is about we need to understand them and the life they have lived. Each one of us has a story to tell. Take a minute, slow down and listen.
Each of us in our own ways hide behind a mask so the world can't see just how fragile we are. Some of us are so good at hiding pain, heart ache, loneliness and so much more. Why should we suffer alone?
If we take the time to stop thinking about ourselves and our problems we will see that maybe things aren't as bad as they seem. There is always someone out there that has it worse then we do. And maybe we can teach each other a thing or two and heal some wounds.
Put your hand out to someone you don't know or understand and new worlds will open to you. Don't be scared, all of us are in one way or another. We are all the same when it comes down to it.
Take that 1st step and walk a 1000 miles in anothers shoes.
Please listen to the song even if you don't like this type of music there is a powerful message in it.
