Like anything else, you'll never truly understand until it happens to you and even then it takes a while to understand it. LisaOnTheGo has experienced this and saying that would never happen to her; now laughs as the tables have turned in her life. She didn't understand when you went through it and she sure doesn't understand it any better now that she is going through it.
However, because of you sharing your life experience with her, she now has more information on something she didn't know anything about and she thanks you! It's so easy to judge, assume, pass judgment on someone else, be lackadaisical on advice and light about it. Then life turns, you are now in that position and you have a different perspective or maybe some of the same however with the feelings and emotions it feels so much more intense for yourself. Then you laugh or cry now having a better understanding of what the other person was experiencing.
They are the first one you call. Wow, and they are more patient, listen to the whole story and more understanding than you were and you are more thankful and appreciative. Then the commiserating and the conversation take on its own accord for a common bond that has now formed. The conversation is more real with bouncing off suggestions, ideas and different perspectives that LisaOnTheGo tries to learn something new and contemplates how she would like to proceed with the situation. She is grateful for her friend’s patience, wisdom, knowledge, and friendship as they now walk on the same path in the same shoes.
LisaOnTheGo has learned to be supportive, loving, caring and understanding when she has not walked in someone else’s shoes because she really doesn’t know what it is like or how it feels.
How about you? Love, Laughter & Peace, LisaOnTheGo
