One’s proximity to someone who struggles with whatever (depression, gluttony, etc.) makes one interact in a very different way.
One may still not change their overall convictions about the problem, but the problem is no longer simply a problem.  It is a person who is struggling with a problem.
Perhaps our frustration with certain problems belies the fact that we are not close enough to those who struggle with such things!

    Totally agree! Until a “struggle” affects you personally, you really have no idea what that struggle is all about.

      Thanks for posting Linda. Pondering those two powerful words of “proximity matters” makes me look at every struggle humans have in a different light.
