Words that made me Think!

"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle." ~Attributed to both T.H. Thompson and John Watson

I got this quote in an email from my Mom, just the other day. And oddly enough I had a similar conversation on the Fourth of July about this topic. I took it as a sign.
It makes me think.
Everyone struggles.
Everyone has a demon or something inside of themselves that they try to deal with.
Some are outside battles, like in relationships with people or their decisions that maybe we don't agree with or relationships with other things, like food, etc.
Some are internal battles, like being too sensitive, or not sensitive enough, struggles with self worth, or struggles with perfection.
Anyway you cut it, we all have something.
We all are dealing with something. And although some may seem small to others, to us they are huge. Battles, struggles, demons can be so strong. The difference is that we can be stronger.

We can lean on those close to us. Those who know our true selves. Those who would never pass judgment. Family, friends, even impartial outsiders can play major roles in our lives and how we fight these battles.

We need to only find the strength within our selves to fight.
And remember that we are all struggling with something.
