Let’s Trade Shoes

Eminem BeautifulDo you ever feel alone? Sometimes in the greatest moments to the worst moments of your life, and all in between, you feel singled out. It is hard to understand in those moments, especially the worst of them, to have faith in yourself and then those around you. You can’t expect anyone to get you if you can’t prove to them that you can understand what they are going through as we’ll. There are very few people in this world that will undoubtedly be there for us whether they understand us or not and even less people who get us but have no ties.

We assume the worst in people because we don’t know them and therefore we disregard the similarities because the shoe doesn’t seem to fit on the other foot. We are all unique individuals with situations that may seem impossible to conceive and yet there they are. Sometimes without realizing we take out our frustrations on others. It is not easy with others because we have our own problems.

Sometimes you need to take a moment, breathe, and gain perspective. Remember that we are all dealing with life in our own way but we all have one of the biggest similarities that define us, emotions. We all have feelings and thoughts which make us more similar then we ever knew. While we can be dealing with varying situations that dilapidate our souls we have to remember that we all get down. It’s up to us to remember that we are all dealing with the struggles of life and if we can all take a moment to remember that then we can make a better difference in each other life.

These thoughts were brought to you by the intelligent advice of Eminem in his song Beautiful:

In my shoes, just to see
What it’s like, to be me I’ll be you, let’s trade shoes
Just to see what it’d be like
To feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each others’ minds
Just to see what we’d find
Look at shit through each others’ eyes
