It is easy to deem someone strange, crazy, or insane if you don’t take the time to understand. This quote by Nietzsche reminds us to think twice before labeling someone insane. Even if you think you know someone; you don’t know their whole story.
We don’t know the full story about anyone else. We don’t know what they’ve gone through. We don’t know what they’re aiming for. We don’t even know exactly what they’re seeing. Perspective isn’t always as straightforward as you might think. But empathy is. Attempting to understand others is a great first step towards understanding and hearing the beautiful music of others’ lives.
