You’re Going To Come Across A Lot Of Very Stressed People This Week…
And some of them will be at breaking point.
This season comes with so much joy and light but for many, it is a time of real darkness and pain.
For those grieving the loss of a loved one; that celebration with one new and very empty chair, is just too much for their battered heart to bear.
For those struggling financially, the need to provide a festive affair can be a suffocating hand on their throat in the night.
For those whose anxiety is strong and unyielding, the multiple celebrations, get-togethers and high expectations are a sensory overload too far.
Then there are those who are achingly, agonisingly alone.
You are going to come across a lot of very stressed people this week, so be kind.
Smile, say something nice, let someone cut in line, if you have money, give it when opportunity arises. If you don’t, find a way to help a soul in need.
You just never know, if your little gesture of kindness will be the star they follow to safety.
Christmas is a time for goodwill to all.
That what really matters.
