I am sure we’ve come across family and friends who we know care, but their actions and support don’t show us they care; which can leave us hurt, frustrated and angry.
I personally don’t believe anyone wittingly goes out of their way to chastise or ignore what someone else goes through, but part of the problem stems from that person, from their past; from how they cope or how self-absorbed they have become. It’s never done on a conscious level.
As we begin to nurture children, we teach them how to behave, how to care and how to be caring, how to support, how to reach out to others when they need support. If children aren’t shown these things, it’s less likely they will do it as adults.
It’s true that we can show children these things, but that doesn’t mean they will go on to do these things. Stress and strains of life can change how we feel. Even with things that we deal with, it is important we don’t lose sight of why we’re here.
It isn’t right for us to continually make our own life an excuse, as to why we don’t reach out to others and yet that is what the majority of us do. Our lives seem to be a permanent excuse. Today show someone you care.
