For several months now, I have felt led to write about something that has been on my mind and in my heart…
Lately, there has been so much sadness in the news. Things that are depressing and heartbreaking. Some days, I don’t even want to logon to social media because I fear what I may read next.
The hardest thing for me has been hearing about all of these people taking their own lives. It hurts me to my core. I hurt for the family and friends of those people. I hurt for those people that felt that was a necessary step to take.
I know we could never understand what they were going thru. We’ve never walked in their shoes. We don’t know how their lives were, what they were going thru, what was on their minds.
What I do know is this… Every life matters. Every single person in this world has a purpose. Now, I know there are some people that take actions we don’t approve of. We may even refer to them as bad people. But, they do have a purpose. Some people choose not to fulfill their purpose, or don’t even try to discover what it is. Nevertheless, we are all important. We all have voices that deserve to be heard.
If the only thing I accomplish in my life is to make others feel loved, then I feel like I have succeeded. Even at 33, I am unsure of my purpose in life, but there are days that I feel like I’m here to help others.
Some of you I know because you live in my town. Some of you I know only on a “virtual” level, but I still consider you dear friends. Some of you I don’t know very well at all, but I still value what you bring to my life, even if all you do is visit my site occasionally. Regardless of how we know each other, or how well we know each other, please know this… I am always willing to listen. And you do matter. Probably more than you know.
Until next time……………………… Stay positive, friends!
