Tell somebody they made it a better day. Just being there, just being around they made it a better day. . Tell somebody you count yourself blessed by them.
It matters. Like few things I know it matters.
When is the last time someone showed you that? There are people who have never heard that. There are people who no longer hear that. There are people who can tell you the last time they heard that because they have heard it so infrequently.
It is a death blow to the human heart.
Everyone needs to hear someone is glad, someone is thankful you are alive.
Without it after a while you wonder. And finally you think they are right. You just take up space. . You don’t matter. And part of you slowly starts to die.
It is a gift you can give that costs nothing. . It can be in a glance, a word, a smile. . It can be in a lot more. There are actually people who don’t remember the last time people looked at them to see them. They know what it means to be invisible.
You have the capacity for kindness that matters. You have the capacity to rescue someone from their island. You have the capacity to make a difference.
Tell someone you are glad they are here. . It matters.
