the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.

Sometimes I sit in wonder at people sitting up high on their pedestals,
looking down at people who are suffering.

They sit in their ivory towers making judgements about things they know nothing about. 

Not all people who suffer are victims.
Many fight, every single day, to be ok.
Blessed are they, not to have that fight.

If only it was that easy as hitting a switch to stop the pain inside your head.

Stop, for just one minute before you pass judgement. Dig deep inside and look for empathy, compassion, basic human decency. 

"Judging is preventing us from understanding a new truth. Free yourself from the rules of old judgments and create the space for new understanding." Steve Maraboli


  1. Hey Vicki, love your new blog layout, great imagery.... hang in there, you have lots to do.... good things, stuff to share and make xx

  2. Amen, hugs - I am burdened by incredible stress because I feel judged by some people close to me. Someone actually said to my husband I am not the only person to have cancer ...
    Cherish those who build you up and spend as little time as possible with toxic people.
    Some health professionals too just don't get it xox

    1. Trish I'm absolutely gob smacked!! It was obviously someone who has never experienced it for them selves first hand. I had someone say to me "well it was only DCIS" - yeh because that makes it all that much easier. Cancer is cancer whatever type it is, and the terror you feel can only truly be understood by someone who has experienced it first hand.
      I have come to realise that you really find out who your real friends are... And sometimes they aren't the people you expected.
      Much love to you. Xxx


Thanks for stopping by... Leave some love :-)
