I’m assuming as you have decided to read this
You are struggling, feeling bad or are just interested in what I have to say, either way welcome.
So first of all it’s important you know that I am better than you, I am more important I’m better than your family, your friends and everyone in your life.
How did you feel reading that annoyed? Sad? Disgusted? Good! These are the emotions I want to provoke. You may ask why… and the reason is, if you felt some sort of emotion towards what I’ve said they it shows that you recognise some self worth and importance in yourself, your family, family and the people around you, you realise you deserve to be happy and you are right I am not better than you I have equally the same amount of importance and worth as everyone I meet, everyone I know and everyone reading this.
And if you don’t feel that self worth within yourself, then take a moment close your eyes, focus, what can you feel? You clothing against your skin? the temperature in the area you are, your heart?
What can you hear listen to the sounds around you, can you taste or smell anything?
That is purpose! You belong here because you are alive and don’t let your mind stop you or make you believe anything different. Being honest a week today, I didn’t know if I’d be here but something told me to fight and while it’s still a battle and I question my worth a lot but if I think about it hard enough… yes anyone could do my job but only 1 person can do it the way I do it and thats me, even if I’m only making a small impact it’s still me making that impact!
My mum is a nurse, but anyone could have been doing her job, taken her place at college etc so why does it matter that it was her?
It matters because she is the one to make that impact. A few years ago (true story) my parents were flying home from a holiday, they collected their cases and a man went into cardiac arrest and collapsed to the floor, no one really knew how to respond. My mum rushed over and took charge of the situation until paramedics arrived. Without her that man may have died. So even though anyone could have been in my mum’s position they wouldn’t have made the same impact because they weren’t there.
When my mum was younger she had no idea that one day she would save someones life… We all make a difference in some way even if we don’t realise it…
A few years ago I was walking home from work and saw an elderly lady, out of politeness I said “hello” and she decided to strike a small conversation. We talked for a short while and then she turned to me and said “you know, I haven’t spoken to anyone for about a week.” And honestly I could have cried.
A simple hello or smile can change someones day and that can be your purpose for the day. But even if you don’t feel like it, you make difference every single day you just don’t know it, you are loved and wanted and needed keep fighting for who you are
Stay safe guys
