Quick Motzaei Shabbos Thought
As this Shabbos was coming to a close, I heard a very sad perspective from a man with whom I am very close about how many people are sad and depressed about their lives.
And it really got me thinking; #1 about trying to help people to not be as depressed, etc., but #2; when we see people, we often jump and judge them, for whatever it might be. But do we stop and think about the fact that their "imperfections" could perhaps stem from problems and difficult things which they are, Rachmana Litzlan, going through?... If someone says or does something perhaps offensive to us, maybe they aren't just trying to make us upset... Maybe we shouldn't get angry or retort, but consider the fact that perhaps there is something making them upset and try to help their life to be more pleasant, and not, Chas V'Shalom, less...
HaKadosh Baruch Hu should give us all much Siyata D'Shmaya in our lives and pick everyone up from tough and depressing times. Amein.
