This evening as I sat on the couch and watched a movie I heard this line “nobody knows until it happens to them”, it hit me like an eighteen wheeler crashing into me. So often in life we think we know how others might or might not feel about their circumstances.

Truth be told is that we never fully can appreciate someone’s response to a crisis in their life. We can do all the reading, podcasts, TED talks etc and still we will never be able to know what that person is going through. This coin has a flip side to it however. Those of us experiencing a crisis should allow grace to those who try to understand yet say and do things that hurt us.
