"Be kinder than necessary, because everyone you meet is fighting some battle." This wonderful quote was attributed to St. John Chrysostom. If you talk with even one person today and give room for listening, you will certainly hear about their battles.
Or to put it another way, as a very ancient and holy woman said to me, when I served her as a chaplain: "If you expect to go 75% of the way in any relationship, and the other person goes 75% of the way, maybe just maybe you'll each end up going 50/50."
Words to live by in the hurly-burly.
