I was walking with an acquaintance yesterday when we passed a man who appeared to be very overweight.
“What a shame,” my walking partner said. “How do people let themselves get like that? Terrible!”
“We never know where people are,” I said. “Would you feel differently about that man if I told you he had lost 50 or 100 pounds this year?“
There was a pause before he said, “You’re right. I have no idea what that man has already faced or is trying to do right now.”
Point made; point heard.
Had any conversations like this lately?
