You Never Know What Someone Is Going Through: 13 Reasons To Always Be Kind

men talking, you never know what someone is going through

You don't know what others are going through when they are irritating, unpleasant, or short-tempered.  

It’s not about you. It almost never is, and that’s a good thing.

Negative interactions with others are unfortunately inevitable, but we do have power over how we respond to them.

Whether some guy cut you off in traffic or the waiter forgot your drink order, you never know what someone is going through until you walk in their shoes.

Before you shout obscenities from your car window or leave a bad tip, consider what they might have gone through today and the positive impact being caring towards them could make.

Here are a few examples of what they could be facing:

  • A family emergency, a bad breakup, car trouble, etc.
  • Depression or anxiety
  • They’ve just had a bad day

Before you're reactive with someone who may very well deserve your ire, consider an alternative that shows more compassion and empathy.

There are many good reasons for choosing benevolence over anger.

11 Of The Best Ways To Put An End To An Emotional Affair

couple flirting, how to end an emotional affair

For someone in a committed relationship, an emotional affair is a worrisome symptom of something deeper.

An emotional affair often represents a lack of emotional contentment at home.

But emotional intimacy with a person outside of the relationship can erode and eventually destroy the marriage or partnership.

Realistically, ending an emotional affair offers the only way to avoid the turmoil and negativity that will inevitably overtake your marriage and potentially end it.

Just because an emotional affair does not have an active sexual component does not mean that it will never turn into full-blown sexual infidelity.

It often does, and that's why it's essential to understand why these emotional connections are so destructive.

Understanding Emotional Affairs

Emotional affairs span the gray area between platonic adult friendships and romantic physical relationships.

Disclosing secrets, seeking comfort, talking about life, joking around, and spending considerable time together — either in person or online — define emotional affairs.

Essentially, the sharing of thoughts and activities that you should be sharing with your spouse has shifted to another person.

These relationships are usually intense because they:

29 Top Signs Of An Attractive, Confident, Kickass Woman

happy woman

The signs of a confident woman are hard to miss. You definitely know one when you see her — but do you see those signs in yourself?

When you walk into a room, do you feel confident like you own it?

Or do you tend to hide in the corner trying to fly under the radar or simply blend in with the crowd?

It can be hard to exude confidence as a woman, especially in our competitive, media-driven society that sends so many messages about who we are supposed to be and how we should look.

Fortunately, you can become a more confident woman by changing some of your mindsets and practicing the skills of confidence — skills that can be learned.

One thing that confident women have in common is the self-awareness to recognize their imperfections and even celebrate them.

They know their strengths, where they have room for improvement, and when to step back and let others take the lead.

You may be a confident woman in one area of your life, but signs of confidence in other areas.

So how do you become a self-confident woman in everything you do?

Let's look at the traits that confident women often share and how you can increase your confidence to embrace just how kickass and amazing you are.

Cocky vs. Confident
