Until you've walked in my shoes..

Some weeks back, I was wondering why my friend wasn't consistent with writing on her blog on Hive. This thing can't be that difficult.
This can't be me, I said.

I started off with so much zeal, visited lots of communities, was in every comment section.. oh boy, I was on a high speed.

There has been a lot of stuff in my plate, from work to family to relationship and as much as I want to give content, how much of me am I willing to show to the entire world through my blog?
I've been a bit overwhelmed by a lot that when I go through the feed, even what I should pay attention to, for the knowledge of reading and even for the reward of commenting; interactions and upvotes, I don't even have an interest.

Looking at my progress in the last couple of days, I throw back to when I was wondering why my friend wasn't serious with what could earn her side income.. guess I'm now walking in her shoes and doing even worse.

This made me remember all the different scenarios where I felt disgust at someone or a behavior they portrayed and a couple of weeks to months, I found myself doing even worse things.

Until I was in a situation did I realize why it seemed as though people were dumb but in actuality, it's just the circumstances and the emotions that came with their situation.

Life happens to all, it does so differently.

Until I've walked in the shoes of one whose gait seemed crooked, until I've taken the path of one who seemed to have quitted on their journey, until I'm at the other side and have seen life through everyone's lens, I have absolutely no right to think they are not doing well or criticize wrongly.

But can I see through everyone's lens? Maybe not.
Hence, I owe myself and everyone who I come across, Kindness.

And I also hope to be motivated even on days when motivation grow wings and fly out the window, on Hive and every aspect of my life.


Until you've walked in my shoes, you can never tell where it hurts.

I recently experienced this thing too, it can be terrible, the lack of motivation. I’m still trying so hard to be consistent

I like how you made us to understand this in your own way and I believe that everyone need to have this kind of info because anything can happen to any of us at any time and it is very important for us to try and be more understanding of whatever people are passing through.

We shouldn't be too quick to judge because we can never be too sure of what people are passing through until we find ourselves in the same situation.

Seems like you are already back on your feet because your blog is up-to-date.

Yea.. no one made us judge.

Yes, I try. I'll keep pushing, regardless.

Thank you for checking through my blog 😊

This is a serious lesson and principle of life that I wholly agree with. We cannot presume to know what someone else is going through or why they make certain decisions.

I'll say you should take your blogging activities one step at a time...no rush, Hive will be here hopefully for a long time. 😁

You are a cool writer. I found my way here through @dreemport. You are doing great already. Keep hiving!

Real-life really gets in the way, sometimes. I have not been able to blog for about 4 days now and it really sucks, to be honest, but we gotta live real life somehow.

Yea..

I think this is still part of "real life".

Our being here, even though a "social media" sort of reflect a part of our life. Or don't you think so?

Nobody knows what you are passing through until they have walked in your shoes.. People are so quick to criticise others not knowing what these persons are passing through... We must learn how not to criticise wrongly... I love the way you explained this beautifully.. Thanks for this awesome post... Keep it up...
