There Are Always Ways to Help…

IMG_5843

Some think the only or best way to help is by giving money to causes, people in need, etc. I have learned something over the years, money can do a lot of good and I would never discourage anyone from giving to worthy causes or helping out someone who is truly in need, BUT there are more ways to help.

Sometimes people aren’t in a position to help financially and feel like there’s nothing they can do. However, we can give our time, energy, and effort to others by volunteering, teaching, mentoring, tutoring, helping people by giving of your services like babysitting, cooking a meal for someone who just had surgery, helping someone move, etc.

Going through our things and giving what we don’t need or no longer use to others who could use it often helps people as well. How many of us have things in storage, stuffed in the back of our closets or the garage, etc that we know we’ll never get around to using again or maybe just bought because it was on sale or thought it would be a good idea at the time and then never used at all? Some can donate blood, which is always in need. Some physically can’t give, but many can.

And let us not forget, sometimes all someone needs is someone to listen without passing judgement. Sometimes people don’t want or need anything of monetary value, they just need a friend to listen, give advice, a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on, or someone to make them laugh. Sometimes people just need to be reminded how special and loved they are and that there is a reason to go on.

One or many of these things may not be doable, but don’t be discouraged. If you want to give back, pay it forward, or make a difference, there are always ways to do it.

A Request From a Sensitive Heart

Image

When watching a movie I have seen so many times

I still cry when it gets to the emotional scenes

It was only a harmless joke, so my friend did say

Yet it still got to me in such a profound way

 

I often hear phrases like, “Why does that bother you so much?”

And another common one is, “Don’t take things so seriously.”

Berated for wearing my heart on my sleeve is a common occurrence

It’d be nice if now & then people instead offered respect & reassurance

 

I’m not necessarily asking you to walk on eggshells around me

My skin isn’t that unbelievably thin, I am not as fragile as I seem

So don’t hold the truth from me because you think it’s more than I can take

Highly sensitive I might be, but know this tender heart of mine won’t break

 

I just ask that if I take something more to heart than you might

To not put me down, to not sit there & call me weak

My sensitive nature isn’t really a bad thing after all

It helps me help others, once they’re ready to break down their wall

 

My compassionate nature & sensitivity go hand in hand

I am not ashamed of that, nor of who I am

We’re all made the way we were meant to be

So please stop trying to toughen my skin, stop trying to change me
