Today’s post is about you, the ones always smiling, the ones always “zen” like people call you. The ones that have it all together, the ones that never complain, the ones that always seem to find the way out, no matter what life throws at you.
Until I was around 21-22 let’s say, I always used to be this person that had a lot going on. It was always about me. I never used to stop and ask even my closest friends the deep, important questions. After I started healing what I had to heal in my own life, I became the person that is always there for others. I became more attentive to people around me, to what they are going through.
Sometimes I feel that my problems are not important enough. And maybe they aren’t, because people around me are dealing with the death of dear ones, having dear ones struggling with cancers, or they are dealing with mental health disorders or physical illness. My point is that we should all achieve the balance. This year has been a bitch for a lot of us if you are asking me, but has also been a blessing in disguise if we knew how to look at things. Most of us can get really self absorbed in our own problems and can feel that what happens around us might be what is the most important. While you are preparing to go to work, someone might suffer because they were made redundant and don’t know how they will pay their rent/mortgage this year.
While you are preparing for your wedding next year, someone might be broken hearted because they lost their husbands/wives this year.
While you are excited for giving birth, someone close to you might be dealing with miscarriage or infertility and you have no clue.
While you are lucky enough to have everyone healthy in your family and around you, someone close to you might be dead worried about their close relatives that are sick.While you might be lucky to be strong mentally, someone close to you might be dealing with anxiety, depression, panic attacks and other serious mental health disorders.
Let’s not become so self absorbed in the good happening to us that we miss what is happening to others around. Check on your strong friends, ask them if they are alright, if their dear ones are alright. It might mean more than you would have thought because no one else is considering it.
