Last week, I wrote a blog post about the relationships I’ve had and past and present.
This week, the news and social media have been inundated with quite a bit of tragedy and loss. From great celebrities like Robin Williams, to the people who we are directly involved with.
Regardless of how we lost them, there is different level of pain and sorrow that we all incur. Whether the loss causes emotional heartache or causes one to feel less safe in the world, there is a rift in our lives that can only heal with time and support.
It is with that that I want to strongly encourage my friends and family to reach out to those you love and let them know there is always somebody there for them.
Hug them, tell them you love them.
Remove the anger, fear, resentment, insecurities.
I have always believed that there is no reason anybody should feel alone in this world.
Reach out to those who you think are weird. Reach out to the ones who seem to be completely out of this world… we’re all different, but in the end, we all are human and all fight our own battles. You never know what a simple smile or a friendly wave can do to people. It’s that simple.
Life is precious. Life is much shorter than you think. All cliché sayings, I know, but… These statements come from a very humbling truth. You’re not alone in this world, so reach out and give that gift of companionship to somebody you love as well as to somebody who struggles to find it.
It’s the greatest gift one can give to another.
