A Mile in Someone's Shoes

Often people tell me I need to walk a mile in the shoes of someone before criticizing. Of course that is impossible to do and is just another way of saying, “I’m right and you are wrong.”

The following quote was sent to me this week. I think it is a good response to the “walk a mile someone else’s shoes” notion.

“Cocky, nah but I have confidence in my abilities. Arrogant, no because without my faith, my God, and those who love me I am nothing. Unemotional, hardly because not all emotions materialize into tears. Judgmental, critical maybe, but I just don't think you always have to walk a mile in someone else's shoes to tell they are walking in the wrong direction.”

  1. A very good response, and I enjoyed it. In my earlier years, my response to walk a mile would be: That way you a 5,280 ft lead on them . . . AND you have their shoes. Have a great weekend.
