This I know is true:
All of us are trying to get around the block with the least amount of pain.
Most of us are still learning how to do that without shoving other people off the sidewalk.
Sometimes we are completely unaware that we have shoved someone else off. Sometimes we are aware, but don’t know how to get what we want without doing it, so we proceed and justify ourselves.
When I get shoved around by someone else, it is good for me to remember that I have also, at times, been the one doing the shoving.
However, self-righteous, wholesale condemnation of others is much easier.
