Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Today...

So, I have been indulging in a spot of therapy over the last 2 weeks in an effort to try to get over a life bump, so that I can feel good within myself and find more strength for my steps ahead.

The first day here I just could not stop crying at the breakfast table and another woman was very kind to me. Most people - even the younger ones tend to be there for each other when needed which is highly admirable. 

Today one of the older women had a bit of a breakdown during lunch and rushed out of the room with her plate in hand. I asked her if she was OK as she went past me but she could not answer. So, I signalled to a young girl to go after her to check and see if she was OK.

Glad she did and I really hope it helped. I can only imagine it is really hard for all of us in one way or another as we all have our own stories and do not know each other properly.

Whether we do or don't get to know each other is another matter and at the end of the day, it really does not matter. For now we are all ships in a harbour and are getting our torn sails mended before we are able to sail off to calmer waters. Although some days are easier than others, it takes time, a lot of patience and the right expert guidance.

Please say a little prayer today for those with mental health issues 💓 Oh yes... during my first week here, I bought a nice potted plant at the local market for the TV room. Today I was thrilled to see it was in full bloom!!! I have learnt so far that every today has special little moments.
