If We Could See Inside Each Other's Hearts...then what?

Someone shared this short (4-minute) video with me and I thought it was a powerful thing to pass on.

It was made for the hospital's service providers -- as a kind of reminder to look beneath the surface.

But for me, it spoke to a much larger issue.

What if all of us, in every interaction we have, were able to see into the heart of the person we were interacting with? How might interpret what they say, or how they say it, differently if we could see how it fit into their world right now?

I know I often try to do this when someone has really annoyed me. Me and Myself have a chat about what might be going on in that person's life that leads them to be so abrupt or angry or silly or...whatever didn't work for me right then. It at least tends to stop me from assuming their needs match my needs and tones down my reactions.

How about you? What might be different for you if you could see inside another person's heart?

I think if we thought more like this, we'd be much kinder to others and maybe even towards ourselves. Everyone is going through something that is not easy, be it health related or otherwise. Thanks for sharing that video.
