Kathi Thomas Gibson of the City of Las Vegas spoke to the SWPTA group and caught my eye with this graphic. Yes, its true — we all go through the same stuff differently.
We don’t know just what our neighbor is carrying around that affects how they react to this situation or that. It wouldn’t surprise me to learn that most of us have experienced the same problems in life, whether it deals with relationships, parents, our job, or personal losses.
Like the critters above, it depends on who you ask. One person sees the mud as neck deep, another as knee deep. The difference may have to do with just what each of us has been carrying around. All that extra weight may sink us into the mud like the little guy above.
Unfortunately there is no easy way to remove the weight and float to the top. Sometimes we just have to wade on through. It’s called life.
