You know when you think you’re justifiably angry with somebody and then you find out that it’s you who has the problem?

Yeah, this is a story about that. And it’s absolutely fucking inspiring. So buckle up.

Thomas McFall was just minding his own business in class when somebody started putting their stuff on his desk.

And it kept happening again and again and again.

So what’s a guy to do?

Get more frustrated with him?

Maybe, but…

Yeah. That’s what he was doing all along.

He was being nice. And Thomas didn’t realize it.

Thankfully, this story has a happy ending.

Worlds coming together to break bread and share common interests? Sounds amazing!

And high fives all around.

Better late than never, indeed!

We can all learn a valuable lesson from this interaction. If you lead with kindness and understanding, you can see people’s intentions for what they truly are – and fun lunches with new friends will happen sooner rather than later.

Try and see things from other perspectives, and you’ll be amazed at what you’re missing.
