Grateful for the health, love, happiness and joy I experience every day. I’m grateful for the well-being of my family and friends. I’m thankful for all the success and happiness coming my way and all the bad times I’m leaving behind.
Most of all, I’m grateful for the ability to learn and let go.
It’s always very hard to remain positive in a very depressive environment. It doesn’t matter if the sun shines, or if you have clothes and shelter, or you have the money to buy coffee and food…When the people around you shout, scream and cry, everything else crumbles.
What to say to the guy who works twelve hours per day, coming home to work-less family? What advice to offer the hard-learning girl, who doesn’t want to work hard as she used to study? What to say to the mother who raised those two incredible different children under the same roof?
Sometimes, there is nothing you can say. Sometimes, the lack of silence is what makes things worse. So you just wait for the energy to calm down. For the anger and hurt to settle down. And than you can begin to mend the broken trust. To mend the broken hearts. To make people respect each other again, by giving them respect, for being who they are.
