I was confessing to a friend that I have embarrassingly large number of pairs of shoes in my closet. I know this because I have recently moved and had to organize them, and there are many, many pairs. Anyone looking at my closet would think that I love shoes, but the honest truth is that I pretty much hate them.

Here's the deal: I have big feet. I have wide feet, but a narrow heel. I have almost no arch. Oh, and I have bunions. Being barefoot feels great, but shoes have never been comfortable--not even the way-too-expensive ones I have to buy because of my hard-to-fit feet. If I wear a single pair of shoes for more than a couple of days, my feet hurt. So in order to fit in with society and adhere to business or business-casual dress codes, I have to switch pairs of shoes frequently. Of course, being a woman means I need at least a couple of different styles of shoe to wear with different outfits. Thus, I have an enormous collection of shoes.

I was thinking about how easy it would be to misjudge my reasons for my shoe collection. How easy it is to misjudge someone else's motives or actions when we don't really know them! Let's think about my shoe problem the next time we see someone living in a way that we don't "get." They may have metaphorical hard-to-fit feet, too!
