Every day we have an opportunity to do and to be better. Each of us can impact the world in a positive way. Albert Schweitzer stated, “the purpose of human life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others”.
We are so busy in our own closed bubble that we forget to connect with our loved ones. Sometimes, we don’t even know the inner turmoil that someone residing in the same home with us is going through.
What if we decide to lend a hand to our friends, family members, and our neighbors? It does not mean to give them our entire life. A simple phone call could make a difference in someone’s lonely day. A simple smile could brighten a stranger’s life. A little word of encouragement could help someone win one of his many fights.
Often, we assume that people are okay. From the exterior, we see they are functioning but in reality, they are just pretending, they are dying to have a lifting hand. People around us are crying for help but we fail to hear them.
After reading my post, let’s make a commitment to reach out to our family members and friends. We can let them know they are not alone in their battles. Let them know they can count on us. Let’s make a pledge to reach out and reconnect.
The world needs us.
