I Try to Find the Good In People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 474 People

    I Have Always Given People The Benefit Of The Doubt.

    We Are All

    Every one of us is a bit of the Divine.  I try to remember that, and seek out the Divine in those around me. Sometimes it's hard, but I keep looking.

    People get judged too quickly,

    sometimes you have to get to know someone before you really know them. Everyone's pain is not the same, it shows different on people. Some can tolerate more and hide it better.
