Happy Sunday! How are you doing? I hope your week has gone well. Mine has been so very busy. I forget what it feels like to have a day off, but I’m also thankful for being busy, because I am spending time with friends and family. One of my keywords for 2019 was balance, so I’ve taken this weekend off from writing. I put my laptop away and didn’t open it. Instead I focused on other things that needed attention, such as cleaning and nurturing my social network.
Some of my friends are going through rough patches in their lives during these winter months. I wish there was something I could do to help them, but Taurus reminded me that it’s not my job to solve everyone’s problems. All I can do is be supportive and let them know I’m there for them. However, there are little ways in which you can help your loved ones and friends!
If you are at a point in life where you are feeling ok, consider looking around you at those who may be struggling.
Help them out.
If they are loved ones or friends, check in with them. See if they’re ok. Let them know you’re thinking of them. Sometimes a quick text or voicemail can make someone’s whole day. And for someone who might be struggling with their own depressions or anxiety attacks, it might mean a lot more to them.
You can help others by picking up the slack, by assisting them more in the workplace or offering to make dinner on the nights where you feel up to performing these tasks. And when they are feeling ok, they may return the courtesy and help you too when you need it.
Just remember that you can’t solve their problems for them, but you can be there to support them and love them.
Stay safe out there, friends!
