Walking in Their Shoe!

We all find ourselves in difficult situations at times, sometimes we end up in these situations because of our own doing or sometimes life brings it to us.



I read stories on the internet about people in difficult situations and some were able to get out and others had to live through it.

Sometimes we can be so quick to judge people or offer up negative opinion and comments on a situation that we have never ever experienced personally. It is always easier to do when you are on the outside looking in and you are not the one dealing with the physical and mental stress.



I was so guilty of this at a point in my life, until I experienced by own difficulties. All the negative comments, advice, opinions and questions from others don't help the situation. In some instances it can cause you to sink lower into the mess. The best advice that I ever received came from people who had walked in my shoes. They had more empathy and understood the situation and how I was feeling on the inside.

Just because we have a friend, who has a friend that went through the same situation and we know all about his/her story and we have given advice on the situation doesn't make us an expert.  We should show empathy, the same thing we would want from others if we were walking in their shoes.

Instead of offering unsolicited advise, making negative comments or asking (who, what, where, when, why and how. We should pray for them.

Prayer has helped me through a lot of the rough roads I have add to travel on. Prayer gave me hope, peace and mental clarity.

Prayer is the only thing that can change people and situations:

Here are my top 6 things you should pray for those going through or have gone through a difficult situation.


  • Pray for Gods protection over them and their family.
  • Pray for God to show them a way out of the situation. 
  • Pray for God to gives them strength to make difficult decisions. 
  • Pray for courage and strength to endure the situation until they are set free.
  • Pray for God to give them peace about the situation.
  • Pray for God to be by their side as they go through the situation

    Hi! I am grateful for the privilege of prayer but more thankful that it has the power to change situations in not only my life but in the lives of those around me.

    1. Hi Ugeena, I don't know where I would be if I didn't have prayer and people praying for me. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I agree that you shouldn't judge people without knowing what they've been through.
    Still I believe if you have fear of some pain or suffering, you should examine whether there is anything you can do about it. If you can, there is no need to worry about it; if you cannot do anything, then there is also no need to worry.
