As a follow on to my last post I saw this image and thought it was a very fitting follow on. Reach Out, we all need to do it sometimes!
In some countries and cultures, reaching out is very normal and the done thing, to reach out to support groups, councillors, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, religious groups etc but in some cultures and countries it is seen as a sign of weakness and a loss of face to admit to others that you are experiencing a problem.
Look at the words on the arms of the two people in the image and consider reaching out to a friend, a loved one, a family member or a support group if you need help or if you have have time and skills to offer support to others yourself then please consider doing so 🙂
I challenge you to watch this amazing short video and get through the first couple of minutes before tears flow freely from your eyes! It’s about a family who adopted a little Down Syndrome boy from Bulgaria, the narration is by his little sister and the beauty and simplicity of her message is a lesson to us all,
True Love is endless and everyone deserves a equal chance in life.
Sticks and Stones Can Break My Bones But Words Will Never Hurt Me……
We we taught this rime when we were young children, back in the day, long before computers and social media…and how Wrong these words are!….
Words can be extremely hurtful and cause great pain and often lead to self harm and in the worst cases even suicide.
Words my friends have the power to hurt and to cure so we must learn to use our words carefully and to surround ourselves with words of joy, of happiness, of love, and compassion because these words were created for a reason, to raise our energy, to raise our spirits, to raise our awareness for good and to help us live lives filled with joy.
My Love, My Smile and My Positive Energy goes out to each and everyone of you today 🙂
