Continuing with nurses week theme, let’s take a look at various reasons people would walk into a hospital. At times it is for yourself, at others for loved ones. Yesterday, I commented on a blogger’s chapels in hospital post about how I always have a half smile whenever I pass the chapel just because you never know what the person on the other end is dealing with. One of the things that I have learned is to never ask “How are you doing?” unless I know them. Because if they are honest, am I prepared to deal with the answer. Once, a lady told me she can’t breathe. It turned out, she meant she walked a long distance and was out of breath. Yeah, so I learned to never ask.
The following video puts it in perspective.
You never know what another person is going through. Try to really put yourself in other’s shoes. It’s called empathy.
