It's often difficult to put ourselves in someone else's shoes to appreciate their journey in life if we haven't experienced the same things as they have. It is very kind though to find compassion for their situation and lend a listening ear when needed.
There is an old saying "Don't expect everyone to understand your journey, especially if the never has to walk your path." How very true.
We don't all travel on the same road. Our pathways are different. Some of us go in different directions but still end up in the same place. Some of us go around in circles or walk paths that seem to lead nowhere. When we encounter each other along the way though, we should stop and meet and share our common stories.
The pathways of life are varied but they are best enjoyed when shared with others.
