I find it so easy to forget this sometimes. Particularly in the perpetually harried bustle that is
New York City.
But here it is, a reminder to myself — to check in with love instead of assuming the worst, the unideal, and the disappointing in others as truth:
“Have compassion for everyone you meet, even when they don’t want it. What seems conceit, bad manners, or cynicism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen. You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone.”
– Miller Williams
