Do you ever wonder of what other's are thinking?
I don't mean of what other's think you. If I was to sit down tonight and listen to what other's among everyone I saw today I think I would be listening to 300+ different opinion's (there were a lot of people at the mall!)
I mean of just other's.. what they are thinking. To take a moment out of your life to simply step into their shoes, their mind.
Of what the bus driver was thinking about today after giving me a bad attitude after asking a simple question regarding to directions. Maybe he has a illness or someone in his family does, afraid of losing his job or something worse.
Of what the girl thought while giving me a dirty look after walking out the fitting room and handing her a majority of clothing I didn't want to only go back onto the floor to pick more clothing to try on. Maybe she has a lot of work already to complete, maybe she was tried or maybe she is having other problems that she needs to sort out.
Of what the sweet Chinese man across the street thinks as he watches me from his yard. Whether it's taking pictures or gardening.. he just happen's to be there.. smiling and asking me how I'm doing and how's the fam.
Of what my brother was thinking of the other night.. through the pure silence on the phone.. after he called my mom crying and telling her she was his only real friend.
I wonder if he knew I was on the other line secretly listening and crying. I wonder if he knew that soon after I went in the shower and in corner crying for a good 5 minutes.
Of what he is thinking of when he learn of what I said.
Of what he is thinking of now. In that hospital.. unable to go home to his family for a minimal 3 month's, possibly a year. On that cold, probably uncomfortable bed.
If I could step out of my zone to hear of what other's are thinking, I would.
To understand them more and their situations.
To understand of who they were and where they are coming from.
