It has been long said that the experience of walking into someone else’s shoes gives you an insight as to what they are going through.
To a degree, it can.
However, while you are walking in someone else’s shoes, you are doing it with full knowledge that you can escape those shoes at any time you choose to do so, and that frees you from much of the burden they are carrying !!
You might think, that you understand what they are going through, but you will never understand it fully until it happens to you..
