Whenever we walk into a hospital — whether it’s for a routine visit or an emergency — we usually just focus on ourselves. Which is natural. After all, hospitals can be stressful places, full of anxiety, waiting and discomfort.
This incredible video courtesy of the Cleveland Clinic illustrates just how complex a hospital can be at any one time, and how everyone inside has a uniquely touching story.
Every single person is going through something, whether they show it or not. Whenever possible, the best thing we can do for each other is to try and bring empathy with us wherever we go, hospital or otherwise. This video makes me realize just how important it is to open my eyes to other people, no matter where I am!
