We’d like to take a moment to send our love and prayers to those who’ve lost someone.
There aren’t many things we can say that’ll ever take another person’s excruciating pain away, but we can be there and we can encourage everyone else to do the same. Unfortunately we live in a world where kindness is somehow perceived as weakness and people have a tendency to judge others as opposed to focusing on their own lives. However, at this point, there’s sadly nothing we can do about it, bullies exist and troubles are all around us, but for those who want to make a difference, all we can do is spread love. We can choose to live our lives reminding others that even in times of adversary, good still remains. Whatever you’re facing that has you wanting to end your life, remember that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. It’s not just a cliche saying, it is the truth. You weren’t brought this far to be engulfed by the darkness, you are meant to prosper.
Please listen to your loved ones and ceaselessly show them kindness. As much as you can, remind them of how special they are, help them in whatever way you can, be the light in their lives when darkness is all they can see. One person has immense power — your kindness can save a life.
It’s not just our loved ones, but remember to extend that kindness to strangers, smile at them in public or perhaps pay for their drink at a coffee shop. Online communities are filled with bullies, take a moment to tell someone you love their blog as opposed to harassing them for different opinions. Use your words to spread love because once an act is done, it cannot be undone. You never know what a person may be facing at that moment you reach out to them — your love may just restore their faith in humanity and give them the hope to believe that there’s still light in the world.
