Even if you don’t feel it’s true, tell yourself that everyone is doing the best they can.
Whether it’s a drugged out teenager on a stretcher, a 70 year old alcoholic, a 22 year old with 6 kids on welfare, or a standard 25 year old with a cold, try to remind yourself that everyone is doing the best that they can.
They’re doing the best that they know how to do with their resources, mental capacity, and means. When a person is 5 years old and being told by their mom that they can be anything they want to be, no one picks “I hope I’m strung-out and relying on the government so that others can judge me.”
A series of life events unique to that individual (but probably shared, in parts, by many) have gotten them to where they’re at. They have enough people judging them, preaching to them and looking down upon them. You’re not there for that. That’s not your job.
