So I thought I’d write a little bit about being kind.. Mainly because so many of you have taken the time to share the gofundme, have donated, have sent messages and all of this. And it’s been amazing. The support I’ve had has been amazing.
I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety for quite a long time. So when this latest hospital episode began I was worried I would dip back in and really struggle. And, it has been a struggle. But thanks to everyone it has been a lot better than I would have expected. Obviously troubles with money has added stress. But other than that I’m lucky to have people who care around me.
There is currently so much going on around the world which needs our attention. There are people being shot in the streets, people having their homes taken away by storms, and more pollution from the pandemic of people throwing masks away and animals getting caught in them, peoples mental health being affected by isolation and redundancies at work. So now, more than ever, is a time to check in on those around you. Make sure they’re doing OK. Ask them twice.
I ffirmly believe we now live in a world where being nice is not enough, and that to make a change we need to outwardly try and impact something, rather than saying you support it. Whether that be Black Lives Matter, Global Warming, Children Starving in Africa and now here in the UK. So make a difference. Educate yourselves on BLM, why its happening. Help a homeless person with food, or donate to a food bank. Or sponsor an endangered animal. Some of us cannot afford much, but being kind costs nothing.
