Walk a mile in my shoes...
Thursday's Truthful Humor
Thanks for joining us for Thursday’s Truthful Humor where we pull truth from humor.
Okay everyone, said the instructor at the birthing class trying to get everyone’s attention. We are going to do an exercise and the purpose is to help the men sympathize with their partners.
The couples looked up expectantly at the instructor. We have here a “pregnancy suit” she said, holding up an artificial stomach with a strap. This imitates the feeling of being pregnant. Who would like to volunteer to be the first husband to try it on?
“I will,” said one of them. He took the suit and tried it on. “This isn’t too bad he said as he walked around. I think I could get used to this.
Okay, said the instructor smiling. She dropped her pen on the floor and said, “Now I’d like you to bend down and pick up my pen from the floor.
You want me to pick it up, he asked, hesitantly, with this pregnancy suit on?
Yup, that’s right.
The husband looks to his wife, “Honey, would you mind picking up that pen for me?”
Ahh, isn’t it so true that until we are walking in someone’s shoes, in other words, experiencing what they’ve experienced, we don’t truly understand their struggle. The next time you see someone struggling, instead of pretending you understand, ask if there’s any way you can help share their burden.
