<<Rule of thumb: assume every stranger you encounter has an invisible disability, a private inconsolable grief, or are in the midst of an undetectable crisis.

Offer each other moments of respite and grace.

Don’t allow projective envy to fool you into thinking you are the only or the most vulnerable person you will encounter in your day.

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you
