We have all being through rough patches in life. Or have we?
It is being human to often generalize our feelings and experiences as the norm and believe that the expectations and feelings of others are also similar in fashion to our own. This is the reason why we have a virtue to treat others in the manner and fashion that we would want us to be treated. This is not true for this day and age.
We should treat others not in the way that we would want us to be treated, but in a manner and fashion that they would want to be treated. Therefore it is important for us to first take a moment to listen, to understand and to find out about the one we want to do something for.
This is perhaps what has changed. The mindset shift that is required in order to build community today.
