I believe that our world would have a lot fewer problems if we would all just place ourselves in others shoes. Everyday we are faced with people that are crying out for help. Some cries are loud, while others are quiet and hidden. No matter the size of the problem, we should place ourselves in other’s situations, and think of the best solution to helping them. However many of us are just ignoring our senses, lying to our mind, and making excuses of why we can’t take a break from our time consuming lives and help someone. The truth is if we could all just take a break from our everyday hectic lives, and stop making excuses, then we would be able to lend a hand to those who are falling. Each person can and does make a difference. With a little adjustment in everyone’s schedule, our world would be transformed into a much happier place.
Helping someone could be as simple as lending a hand and assisting someone who is struggling. Everyday we pass many people in the hallways that drop their books, or that may just seem confused. Asking them if they need help is a simple but very powerful gesture that has the opportunity to greatly influence their day. Even if we can’t help, the simple offer can be just as powerful. Put yourself in their shoes; don’t be a follower and walk pass the struggling person like everyone else. Be a leader, think about how you would want people to act if you were in that situation.
I believe that people’s mental and physical problems are a top priority, and people should treat them like one, even when it’s not them with the problem. If people stopped putting their problems on others plates, and just helped them, then we would be a much more peaceful place. Try taking a walk in the millions of people’s shoes that are dealing with life or death situations every day. No one should have to deal with their problems by themselves. When you see or hear someone crying out for help, take a timeout for your life and put yourself in their situation. We need to remember that we aren’t the only people with problems; other people have much worse difficulties, even if they don’t show it. Putting yourself in others shoes is a simple act of kindness that can go a long ways and influence someone greatly. With some dedication, understanding, and everyone uniting together, I believe that we have the power to change people’s day from bad, to good.
