I continue to be amazed by the struggles that are all around us that we do not even know about.
Yesterday, someone I know well thanked me for my blog post on public speaking. He had done what I suggested and felt more at ease with a recent speech he gave. I shared with him that I had no idea that this was a struggle for him. If I had to guess I would think that public speaking came naturally to him.
Since I have started this blog, I am hearing more and more stories like this where I learn that someone I know has a struggle that I was unaware of. And the struggles are different. Not all introverts all alike. It reminds me of a quote I read recently:
“Be kind to people and don’t judge, for you do not know what demons they carry and what battles they are fighting.” ― Vashti Quiroz-Vega
