“Be kind. Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” —John Watson
We meet all kinds of people every day. People we can relate to. People who seem to have nothing in common with us. People who you instantly like, and people who aren’t as easy to like. But no matter who you meet, it’s important to remember that everyone has their own story and their own struggles—even if you can’t see them.
This month, challenge yourself to give each stranger you meet the benefit of the doubt. You have no way of knowing what silent battles they might be fighting, but treating everyone you meet with dignity and kindness will most definitely make the world around you better.
