Do you ever wish someone can walk a mile in your shoes?

Do you ever wish that those who have judged you or treated you unfairly could walk a mile in your shoes so they can feel what you feel and experience what you experience if only just for a day, Iv had some experiences with judgemental people in my life, and I suspect I will have a lot more good and bad experience's with people before my life is over, but I think that before anyone judges anyone negatively they should stop and try to understand where the person is coming from. So tell me do you sometimes wish that someone can walk in your shoes?

Yes, especially the people that judge you when they don't even personally know you.

Hi buddy. I sincerely wish that my boyfriend could walk in my shoes so he can understand what i have gone through. Some time he accuses me a lot for things i did but doesn't understand why i did? When i lost my job and i had no contact of him then i was totally shattered as i was the only breadwinner in my home. I did a online job of uploading wallpapers for a mobile site but the person who owns it is someone whom he despise for his own reason but at that time i had to pay my younger sister's school fees. He still taunts me about it sometime but that was the only work i could do that time and it was a total honest hard work. I wish he could be in my shoes and understand how much i had been going through that time and still am but thankfully i would get a job as i would be replacing my friend next month as she is getting married.

Hello apples99 I have never thought about it but as you have asked I shall answer! I think I would like others to walk in my shoes for a day or so. They would see that they can't do what they want to do like just nip out down the road to buy a paper, yeah sure I can do that but I would have to take all three of my kids with me as they are too young to be left at home on their own. There is no one else there to say 'can you help no.1 son with his homework' etc, but I wouldn't change my life fo the world though it would be nice for people to see life through my eyes!

No, because they might actually do it better than me, and then what kind of loser would I look like complaining about how hard I had it, when they made it look like a breeze.

OMG yea I would love to have that happen in fact I have a list of ppl who I'd love to line up starting with every member of my immediate family! Particularly my mother then my brother..I'd love for them to walk in my shoes for 24-48 hours when I was at my worst and I'd want them to remember those hours and realize without a shadow of a doubt that they did this..

I have experienced judgment from different people and it doesn't feel good at all. I was able to tell one women how I felt when she spoke up and was judging everyone,not just me. What happened was, I was in college and we were in a class together. She was talking about everyone that got food stamps or welfare should have to get out and work for it even if they had to dig ditch's. I thought that was a really unfair statement because years before that my husband had messed his back up and couldn't work. I was working but I was not making what it took to pay bills and buy what we needed to take care of three kids. I got mad and told her what I felt. I feel like this, people shouldn't judge others because the same thing could one day happen to them.

I would want someone to walk in my shoes if, after they out their own back on again, they would at least acknowledge that maybe I am not as insane as they thought before the walk and would let me carry on my way in future without critisising further. I get accused of being too patient, too forgiving, too soft and too positive and not worrying enough about things. I don't get cross because I didn't find another job yet. I don't get cross because a certain situation didn't go as expected. I ask questions where others would never dare because I feel I have more to lose by not asking in the first place. I do things my way. I would not expect them to do as I do after taking the walk but at least let me get on and not judge. I get on with things my way, tripping over too sometimes, but I never place the blame on others and I let others get on with their way of doing things.

I wish my husband could walk a mile in my shoes so that he would know sometimes how I feel when he talks to me. Sometimes he doesnt think before he talks to me and doesnt realize that he is making me sad. If he could only feel how I feel just one day he would change the way he acts.
