“Do you know what one of the most exciting things happening in time and space is right now?
Never underestimate your presence or involvement in other people’s lives. You may or not notice but every interaction you have with others can improve their day. Just a word of acknowledgement, a positive comment, words of appreciation can work wonders. Never hesitate to make someone feel better about him or herself.
It is not uncommon that even though some individuals may seem to have a hard outside shell, they ultimately suffers a lot in the inside. Psychologically speaking, they battle a lot of uncertainty, self-esteem issues, self acceptance and much more. In retrospect, to avoid being perceived as weak, they present themselves with lots of confidence, as to what it may appear to you. Our level of perception is masked by how others behave and present themselves to the outside world. We have the tendency to jump into conclusion based on elements that are not indicative on how others really feel. Unfortunately, we do not have that gift to read the inside the mind of someone by just looking at their eyes and capture their suffering. Psychiatrist do that, and you are probably not one of them.
So, what can you do to make a change? It can be easier to just use the theory that EVERYONE suffers equally from whatever demons navigate within their conscious and subconscious mind. Many will not reach out to you and blatantly tell you that they need some words of appreciation from you. Just feel like EVERYONE needs that and just make others feel better regardless of how they feel TODAY. Believe me, it doesn’t hurt.
