Hey to all! Happy Sunday! I hope you are doing well. I decided today that it would be a great time to address some things that I have noticed with society and people in general. This statement is so true: Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see. People will kill you off before you even get sick enough to die. You’re probably wondering where I’m going with this post but it will all make sense. Don’t believe the stories.
To say I hate cancer is an understatement. I do not use the word hate because it’s not nice to hate people or things but cancer is in that exception. You never know when and where little gems will pop up at you. This post might be a little all over the place but so many things in such a short period of time have really jumped out at me and I wanted to share them. Currently I know of someone that is fighting cancer and let’s just say that some people are praying for her downfall. I can say this because I’ve actually had conversations with different people and they aren’t positive about the outcome. If she’s still fighting that should mean something and you should respect that. Pray for her to beat cancer not the other way around.
Never I repeat, never count a person out because you don’t know that person’s full situation, especially if you haven’t even seen the person for yourself. After the conversations, I had prepared myself for the worst because the picture that they were painting wasn’t a good one. Let’s just say I was able to see the person face to face and I personally didn’t like the description on what I was told. I always knew the statement was true but believe none of what you hear and half of what you see. Maybe the person is dying but in reality we are all dying a little each day. Doctors are imperfect people just like us and can get things wrong. It happens all the time. I’m glad I was able to place my eyes on her, laugh, talk and just enjoy each other’s presence.
Another thing, stop asking questions unless you genuinely care about the person without being nosey. Asking questions because you care and are concerned is one thing but asking questions to start rumors and lies is another thing. Point to be made: Stop posting on social media that you did this or that for the person for likes and comments, people’s lives aren’t things to be shared all the time. Keep some things private. If they haven’t posted that they are in the hospital fighting for their lives then you shouldn’t be either, be respectful and mindful of other people. I didn’t post this to fuss but people are taking things too far.
Stories will be told and lies will be shared but not one time will you hear, ‘well I went to see this person yesterday’ from the people spreading the lies and stories. Take notice at that. They will even say they miss the person but haven’t made an attempt to visit and see about the person. Let’s go back to the old fashioned ways/days and actually visit after you find out where the person is located. Visit, take food, flowers if you can’t do one of those things just go and share a laugh and hug. Love on the people you care about.
Stop believing the stories and start going back to actually taking interest in getting to know people for genuine reasons and not for gossip. We have to do better about not leading with the me first attitude, that attitude is not attractive. I’m not saying don’t love, care and respect yourself but people have real feelings and struggles get real for other people as well. Be mindful.
Within the next couple of weeks, check on someone that you haven’t talked in a while and see how he/she is doing. It doesn’t cost a thing to reach out. Spread love. Spread joy. Share laughs. Share smiles. Share happiness. Share goals. Spread positivity. Share love. Thank you for stopping by.
Until next post!
Shine bright and don’t forget to Find Your Light!
