Have you ever thought about what it’s like to walk in your sisters shoes? Have you ever considered what could have gone through her mind when she seemingly dismissed you as you walked pass with a smile? Have you have wondered why she sits in the corner by herself away from the crowd engaged in her own world and not with others? Have you ever thought why she seems so abrasive with everyone who comes into her space? Did you judge her as dismissive, stuck up, and
hot-headed? Could you be guilty of the same things?
Would you think differently if you knew that the reason your sister walked past you dismissively is because she was concerned about her future and worried that she will never figure out what she’s supposed to do with her life? What about your sister who sits off by herself who looks as if she is into herself? The person that invited her canceled at the last minute. She doesn’t feel comfortable in new settings without a familiar face. And our abrasive sister – her bark is worse than her bite but only people who choose to look pass that learns that her being abrasive is her uncontrolled compassion and that she is learning how to control it.
Sisters, the next time you pass your sister consider what it is like to walk in her shoes.
