Helping Others

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

In my previous posts I have talked about how important I believe it is to spread positivity to others.  One of the most difficult tasks that anyone can face, however, is trying to spread joyfulness to individuals that are having a difficult time in their current situation.  

I discussed how isolating the mind can make us feel when we get locked into a negative mindset. The incredible volume of functions that our brain participates in can be overwhelming, especially when we find ourselves dialed into adverse situations that can be caused from stress, social pressure, etc.  

When we see other people struggling to find positivity I believe that the best thing we can do is be empathetic.  When I find myself in situations of doubt, hearing comments such as "you'll get over it", can almost make the feeling even more detached, because it seems nobody really understands.  We all have worse days than others, and instead of trying to completely forget about the bad days, use them as references to empathize with others when you see them having a hard time.  

Spreading feelings of positivity can come not only from a joyful attitude, but also from letting people know that they aren't isolated in their feelings of doubt or sadness.  

Have a great rest of the weekend :)
