Tip understanding

Its hurtful and frustrating when our loved ones, dont take the time, or just cant seem to understand our actually illness. When viewing another persons actions or life are only viewed and judged through the eyes and mind of your own, you will never make sense or understand. Its okay to not understand, its IGNORANT to not try to. Forgive them for their lack of empathy and carry on stronger, with the new skill that and perspective that will make you a better human than that. - Liz Davies
