It's a little strange to think about how our lives progress. We live in endless halls of windows. We look in on other people's lives, and yet, our viewpoint is narrow and obstructed. Some windows you just pass without thought, and some you come back to. Some are foggy and some are cracked. Sometimes we stop just long enough to get a clear view of the people living inside those temporary portals. In those short times, those moments of clarity, we see things that change us. Events that will stay with you forever. Our windows line up with theirs. As we pass through these halls with these windows upon windows we witness the hardships and lives of others, but also have to see through our own. With a cracked window to block your view from an already shattered window, sometimes we don't see things the way they are. Our skewed perspectives can cause even more damage. Sometimes the damage is only in a single pane of glass, but sometimes the cracks originate from the very center and color every inch of it. People are like that. Sometimes we forget that their lives are being led from the experiences and we judge them too harshly. Their window does not show everything, and you paint your view through your own experience. Lives are fragile, and glass is very hard to repair without being replaced. This is out of character for me, so I'm trying to explain the best way I can. Treat others as you want to be treated, because you haven't seen everything they've lived through. Don't cause more damage, they don't need it. Be kind to everyone, especially those you don't like, because they're looking at your through their own shattered windows too. -Bug

very well explained, and I agree with your words
thats what i’m here for, fresh perspective.
My God, these words are amazing. Such beautiful writing and wisdom. These words spoke to me as I have had a falling out with someone recently because we were responding through our filters and past hurts. Great wrods.
thank you for posting.
its nice to know it reached someone, i don’t know why it felt imperative that i impart these words of wisdom to anyone. but it looks like every time i do, it is something someone very specific needs to hear.
