The Director of Campus ministry at my college had a quote on her office wall:

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

It was a thought-provoking quote, if for nothing else to nudge me toward empathy for as long as I remembered it.

After working on a team with HR professionals, in a role where I learn privileged information about my colleagues and the battles most don’t know anything about, this quote has a much deeper meaning.

I am inspired by the strength that my colleagues and their ability to do their jobs considering everything that is happening in their lives.
