The mom hesitated then turned back and walked up to Don’t make me run over you with my wheelchair shirt. She asked if I was okay. I told her no and why. She held my hand and after I got my story out, asked if she could give me a hug. It was the best hug, one that reached around my body and whispered to every fiber of my being that I’d be okay. I thanked her and she walked back out of my life. That was in 2019, I am divorced now but that moment will stay with me for my lifetime. Empathy people. We need more empathy in this world. This brings hopeful tears to my eyes. Sometimes my empathy gets to be so hurtful! I see so much hurt and pain that I feel there are so many people hurting that I can not stand feeling their pain.

Best Don’t make me run over you with my wheelchair shirt
Thank you for your comments. It helps to Don’t make me run over you with my wheelchair shirt. I just stood by my car and cried, I didn’t know how I was going to be able to drive home. Whilst I am not a parent, I am trying to use your words and your wisdom to strengthen my relationships with my family (my husband, my parents, etc) and to try and be a good role model for my nieces and nephews. She hugged me. A complete stranger I’d never seen before. I was able to drive home. All this time on and I still remember how much that helped me that day. Loving this. I am a noticer but always hope nobody notices my pain and trauma. I don’t know what to do with their concern.
