What if all someone needed was to hear "I Love You" or "I believe in you" just one more time? Would that stop them from doing something that would change their life? I believe it would.
Of course, it takes more than just a few words, one time. It takes consistency, compassion, and empathy. How many times has someone given you a smile or hug when you were feeling low? How many times has your thought process and action been turned around because you got a text that said "I care."
As you go about your daily routines, take a few moments to send someone a few words of encouragement. Give a smile to someone who frowns. That person who always eats lunch by themselves doesn't have to feel alone when you are there. We can all do our part to show others that they are loved and a valuable part of society.
My words of encouragement for you.
You are more than a number. You are not your situation. God created you and gave you a purpose. I know it seems hard right now, but it will get better. The pain you have been carrying around does not have to weigh you down. Choose life. Choose the will to live and love. You are not alone in this world. There is always a better way and a brighter day. You are more than a conqueror. You can win!!
