"Do Something" Day 27 - Comfort

Whenever I am able to sit for a few moments and scroll through the newsfeed on my facebook page, many times I run across posts from friends that are struggling. Whether it be a job that they are tired of being at, struggling with depression or an illness, family issues, sick children, etc. I always admire their friends that post comments that are so uplifting and loving. There are times, though that someone is truly hurting and there are no comments, that's not to assume that friends don't send them a private message instead. I'm sure they do. I send private messages a lot because something I want to share with them that they might relate too, don't always need to be broadcasted for the world to see.
In our busy lives, and in our own struggles and challenges and pain, we must remember to help those who are hurting. It may seem way out of left field sometimes to try and comfort someone is is also hurting, you may feel as though you don't have one extra ounce to give to someone else. When you reach out, even the tiniest bit, it makes a world of difference to someone, and eventually to yourself as well. When you care for others, you start to care for yourself and slowly realizing that serving others is wonderful therapy.

So, next time you see a friend on facebook in need, or receive a text or email that sounds like someone might be struggling, try to focus on that person, reach out, talk to them, take them out if you are able, and most importantly...pray for them!

They will appreciate it so much.

Blessings be with you...
