n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as meaningful and intricate as you
This is a curious incident that occurs everyday in our lifetimes. How many people have passed by you? How many of those people will you ever meet again? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live a day in the life of one of those people? Every person you pass by has a life just as exciting and complex as yours. They may have already experienced, be experiencing, or have yet to experience many of the things you already have lived through. It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. Everyone is living their own life without giving a second thought that others are living their own lives too. Someone may be having the worst possible day in their life, while another might be receiving exceptionally good news. Give this a thought the next time you pass by a stranger.
