Day 3370 – You Never Know What’s Going On Behind The Scenes

As I scrolled through my On This Day (much later in the morning thanks to blocking Facebook on my phone), I noticed this post, How Is The New Reading Plan Going?, where I talked about doing a devotional plan with Bret.

I wrote this post a few days after I got sober. I said this “Up until this morning, we’ve only missed one evening!” What I didn’t say in that particular post is that the one evening, I got plastered. I was so drunk, we couldn’t read together.

There have been many times on my blog where I only share part of a story, there are times when I cannot share the full story for a myriad of reasons. It got me thinking that we need to be aware of this in our day to day lives. There are folks out there going through things you would never know.

Sometimes it’s good things like carrying a large check into the bank that will finally pay off the debt that has taken years to pay off. Sometimes it’s the death of someone, and their pain comes across as anger. Sometimes it’s a secret, long carried, and never or very rarely shared.

I don’t think we can every truly, 100% know someone. There are just too many layers and experiences and moments that cannot be shared. As you’re going through your day today, remember that you never know what’s going on behind the scenes of someone else’s life.
