When we ask someone if they are okay let us be kind and authentic and compassionate
Not because we are supposed to but because we are all struggling in some large or small way and we need each other to lean on
Do you ever notice when people say they’re okay but they have sadness in their voice and pain in their eyes and you just know they feel alone
How many people think they have to feel that loneliness instead of asking for a listening ear because the thought of asking for help seems to be a more difficult task than living with the pain and what a tragedy that is
Let us be gentle with others because we have no idea what our seemingly small acts of kindness are doing for those we didn’t know had that much pain to bare
You have the sun on your face and the wind at your back. You have sand between your fingers and grass under your toes. You have oxygen in your lungs and blood running through your veins. Whenever you feel lonely, call upon all that touches you to feel alive again. You are never alone.
