Great Spirit, grant that I may not criticize my neighbor until I have walked a mile in his moccasins

~ Native American Plains Proverb ~

There’s nothing more empowering to a person than having another person walking by your side during difficult times.  Empathy and compassion doesn’t mean you take away the struggle and challenge of another person’s life.  It’s just being there and fully grasping the reality of that struggle and challenge.  There’s nothing like finding the courage and strength within yourself to bring you through what seemed insurmountable.  This needs to come from within.  The difference between feeling alone during that time vs. having others willing to listen and encourage makes all the difference in the world.
