“Do not judge my story by the chapter you walked in on.” ~ unknown
I have always loved the quote above. It is more than a quip about not judging others. It reminds us that everyone has a story. What you see when you interact with a person is one page in the story of their entire life.
When you encounter a human in a foul mood, speaking harsh words or with an eccentric attitude, remember not to judge them too harshly. The writer of their story may be adjusting the story arch. You could be seeing a plot twist.
Treat everyone you meet with kindness and understanding.
Here is another relevant quote,
“We are all stories in the end, just make it a good one eh?”- The 11th Doctor (Doctor Who)
