Thought for the day: Never judge what you don’t understand

When I got on Facebook this morning there is a status going around in support of those with invisible illnesses.

Just because you can’t see them…and don’t understand them, does not mean they aren’t real and don’t affect people in their daily lives.

This hits at home because I know many people who suffer from things like anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, autism, etc. and just because they suffer from this and people don’t understand, normally others jump to conclusions.

People close to my have a harder time with the simple things, like learning in school, making friends, and other parts of life that most people seem to have come easily to them.

Just because someone is different, does not mean that they don’t have feelings just like you and me.

Maybe you should get to know that person…and ask questions about the illness they suffer from. That way you can fully understand what they are going through, rather than judging them.

We are all equal in this world…some of us just have more obstacles to jump over than others.

If you or a loved one have an invisible illness, show support today…just put this as your Facebook status for a short while, just to show awareness to your friends who may not know or understand these illnesses.

Just copy and paste the paragraph below. 🙂

“Hard to explain to someone who has no clue. Or doesn’t believe you. It’s a daily struggle being in pain or feeling sick on the inside while you look fine on the outside. Please put this as your status for at least 1 hour if you or someone you know has an invisible illness (Pancreatitis, Crohn’s, PTSD, Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Diabetes, LUPUS, Fibromyalgia, MS, ME, Arthritis, Cancer, Heart Disease, Epilepsy, Autism,M.D. etc.) ” Never judge what you don’t understand…”
