Pat’s Chat — May 14

The following was shared on Facebook and I don’t know who started it, or wrote it, but so many folks liked it, and some shared it.  I have decided to send it as the basis for Pat’s Chat this week.  I am sure, if you read my Chat, you will not be surprised.  A good friend of mine saw it on Facebook and replied that it just made sense – to treat each other the way you yourself would want to be treated.  Decades before this was written Someone else said something similar, “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”  What a different world it would be if we all took it to heart and lived this advice!

“As governors are trying to figure out how to ease back in to a new normal, please remember:

Some people don’t agree with the state opening.... that’s okay.  Be kind.

Some people are still planning to stay home.... that’s okay.  Be kind.

Some are still scared of getting the virus and a second wave happening.... that’s okay.  Be kind.

Some are sighing with relief to go back to work knowing they may not lose their business or their homes.... that’s okay.  Be kind.

Some are thankful they can finally have a surgery they have put off.... that’s okay.  Be kind.

Some will be able to attend interviews after weeks without a job.... that’s okay.  Be kind.

Some will wear masks for weeks.... that’s okay.  Be kind.

Some people will rush out to get the hair or nails done.... that’s okay.  Be kind.

The point is, everyone has different viewpoints/feelings and that’s okay.   Be kind.

We each have a different story. If you need to stay home, stay home.  But be kind.

If you need to go out, just respect others when in public and be kind!

Don’t judge fellow humans because you’re not in their story.  We all are in different mental states than we were months ago.

So, remember, be kind.”

“Please share this reminder for kindness.” This is Facebook’s last comment, so I am sharing it with you.
