If you see someone looking really dejected, almost despondent, while you’re out in public…do you go up to them and ask what’s wrong? I always worry that doing so crosses some kind of invisible line between acceptable and not-acceptable public interaction. I’d hate to be that person who sees someone looking like they want to take a swan dive off the top of a building, but I also don’t want to stick my nose in where it doesn’t belong and possibly set them off, getting me or other people hurt in the process. I suppose it comes from wanting to treat others the way I’d want someone to treat me. If I was looking glum or really, really depressed, I’d want someone to ask if I was okay, if there was something they could do, because it would at least show someone cared. Sometimes that’s all we need.
