Be kind at all costs, in all circumstances, to all people…because we never truly know how high someone has climbed when they feel good or how far they have fallen into depression or despair. Having a support system might mean the difference between a friend caught in a debilitating depression or their ability to see a light of hope in the depths of the lows. Emotional stability is a slippery slope for most of us…I have noticed that we are all 1 circumstance away from being emotionally unstable…one mis-step, one insult, one injury, one accident, one health scare, one interaction…literally one circumstance away from being unstable…it is all in how we perceive and process the circumstances we face that define the highs and lows of our life. Do we perceive our circumstances as obstacles or opportunities? Do we believe everything is possible or that most things are impossible? Do we focus on doubt or believe in the dream?Everyone smiles when things are going well…we appear happy, content, fulfilled and no one worries about our mental health. We attend social events, we post pictures, and we are actively engaged in our social network.When life feels challenging, we might not express the emotional highs and lows that comes with life’s challenges. Most of us are internally dealing with emotional highs and lows that are never expressed in casual conversation or even shared with our closest friends and confidants.I have several friends who have shared traumatic circumstances with me in confidence, but you would never know the pain they carry by seeing them out in public or while following their social media pages…It is so important to check on our strong friends…the friends who never ask for help, the friends who always seem put together, the friends who never cry or appear to need support…we must check on our strong friends.Regardless of how well we think we know someone, we truly never know how high someone can climb when they feel the highs of accomplishment and perceived success…and we never know how low someone can fall in the depths of despair, depression, or doubt…We all need support…we need a helping hand, an encouraging word, a supportive friend…check on your strong friends. Reach out to them and let them know you are always there…a short text or kind word might mean the difference between someone drowning in isolation and or uplifted by inspiration.Get lost in paradise and find your Self on a Spoken Word Yoga Retreat to Spiritually Significant places across the Globe.
