Today I’m going to be posing a question…you see the other day I overheard someone crying. At first I was going to ignore it, because I’m not very good at comforting people (I just don’t know how to react) but instead something told me that I should go and see if this person was alright.
I gently knocked on the door. “Are you okay?”
When they replied with, “Everything’s fine Ryder. Thanks.” I decided not to press any further and to go back to watching Magnum P.I.
I don’t know why this has been on my mind since but I do feel kind of like I should’ve done more.
They stopped crying for a bit but I heard them again not long after, and I felt as though I should check again or let them know that I was there if they needed me.
I’m not someone who likes to get into people’s business, but something seriously moved in me. It was as thought I was making up for the time I heard them crying before and didn’t bother to check.
If you had been in this situation, would you have just asked and left it at that, kept pestering them until they told you what as wrong, or just mind your own business?
I feel like I’m over thinking this. I’m trying not to, but I know that I am. Let me know in your comments.
