Quick thought today to share with you: everyone is going through something. Mental health has a range of depths, and affects everyone differently, but everyone has struggled with it at some point. From a bad attitude for a few days, to a real and difficult struggle with depression. We can do a better job at being available for each other if we just realize we don’t really know how those around us are really dealing with life.
Make it your job this week to approach others with empathy and bring a bright moment to their day. Depression and anxiety are real, and many times there is a stigma to talk about it and be open. Treat those that you come in contact with as humans needing a little extra love, support, and hope. If we all do this, we can end up helping someone who needs it, without them having to ask for the help. Recognize the reality of mental health struggles, and decide what you can do it about it for others.
Slow down a little to listen. Smile hard through your mask. Assume the best when you are treated poorly. Make it your job to care.
