Be the kind of person…

Be the kind of person who isn’t afraid to ask someone if they are okay twice if they say they are but look like they aren’t. Be the kind of person who smiles at people even if they don’t smile back. Be the kind of person you wished for when no one was there for you. Be the kind of person who is brave enough to stand alone in a crowd for what is right. Be that person because we need more people like that in the world. Be that person because people like that are rarer than the rarest diamonds and gold.

  1. I reblogged, of course. It’s odd because I just posted a very discombobulated rant of my own, I am NOT in a good place mentally and I feel so damned alone…Yet another friend wrote a post about her own experience at the moment and the first thing I did was go read and comment to let her know I am here for her, even if I am…a trainwreck myself.
    It’s not about thinking I have any answers for her or anyone else. It’s just a solidarity thing. Letting others know, hey, you are not alone, let’s talk about how much it sucks if you want to…
    Because that is what I would want for myself. IF my mental state even allowed me to be vulnerable long enough to accept someone’s offer of help. My own strength seems to be in building up the barbwire shell around myself with all the sarcasm and swearing and ‘tough girl’ persona.
    I am tough but I am far from bulletproof and mental health stuff is packing armor piercing ammo. 🙂
