“Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something, and has lost something.”

~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.


Like everyone, you will have moments where you feel like the world is conspiring against you, while comparing your situation to all those people who seem to have it so easy and always get what they want.  Perhaps you feel this way often, and even right now.  STOP.  Unless you are in a war or natural disaster, it is almost certain that you can take action to change your situation. And guess what?  You’re not alone – everyone goes through dark times of fear and loss.

For yourself, find the courage to act when faced with challenges.  And perhaps more importantly, when you meet someone who is being difficult, remember that they, like you, may simply be experiencing a dark moment.  Rather than reach a negative conclusion about them, take a moment to consider whether they just need a little help, and offer it.
