Remember one of those days where it just seemed like the world was against you?Like nothing was going right and you couldn’t even catch a break. It felt like everyone hated you, didn’t want to talk to you and just felt like no one truly cared. When we feel like we are at our worst, it just seems like the world reflects exactly how we feel. Feeling impossible to find joy, impossible to find the brighter side of things or even impossible just to find a smile. When we have such a contrast between our good days, and our bad ones, we need to remember how important it is to be grateful on those good days. doing whatever we can to store it in our memory to use as ammunition to fight when we are feeling low.
When you see someone who isn’t acting themselves, or anyone who looks like they are feeling low, reach out a hand. Being able to be a piece of light in their dark day will mean very much to them. You know exactly what it is like when you are down and just wishing for a little bit of kindness. The greatest thing we can do is give the kindness that we wish receive from others. Not saying that it will be reciprocated every time that you are down, but it for sure will be a memory for you and a reminder that one persons words can make a difference.
So hold on to hope for humanity when you are feeling your lowest, and be the light when others are at their low.
Stand for someone represents this.
These days it’s hard to really have something that motivates you to get up in the morning yes you may be driven to achieve your goals of trying to be the best in the office, getting a promotion, playing a sport. But do we have any goals that aren’t just about us?
if you search deep in your heart and your mind right now, what drives you? If it’s not your dream for the future, if it’s not something you’ve always wanted to achieve, or helping out your family or anything like that. Then stand for someone means go out and help others. Change your mindset from how can I help me to how can I make a difference in someone’s life. Be that the shining example of how humans are supposed to be. In public you’re a kind caring human being. Try to go above and beyond when you see somebody, don’t just walk by, instead now you’re gonna walk up to them and ask how they are doing , say hi, give a smile.
The problem is that we have been so so focused on our phones, so focused on stuff that doesn’t really matter that we’re ignoring the people around us. Live with your head up and look around. So if you’re feeling all right be a little caring and kind to somebody else and if you’re having a bad day you’re going to be hopeful that somebody’s gonna be a little extra positive towards you, it’s just a give-and-take.
The more and more people who believe in it, we can have more of a supporting society. Which I know is very naive but it’s also possible, then the outliers who decide to be purposefully rude and negative, will stand out more and we can ignore them.
There are a lot of people out there who can’t speak up for themselves, whether they are not capable emotionally, physically capable. There are people out there dealing with severe mental illness who cannot communicate their needs. Or people dealing with physical disabilities that make it much harder. If can and you feel confident in your heart, then stand for them!
