I love to search for blogs to read based on tags. I’ll type in a word for whatever I’m in the mood for reading. Today I felt lead to uplift people, so I typed “mental health” in the tag search and began to read posts with that tag. I quickly found a lot of people that were hurting, struggling, and longing for connection. I decided to leave a quick little note on their posts. Just something to let them know they were seen, not just that I read their post. I wanted them to know I knew that struggle, I knew that pain, I knew that hurt, and they weren’t alone. They had opened up and poured their heart out and I could see their loneliness in their words.
In the comments, I just shared a positive takeaway that I got from their post. No matter how down, dark, or sad their post was, there was a little hint of positivity in each of them. So I watered that seed of positivity. It just made me realize that we can help people and make a difference without knowing them, meeting them, or even leaving our house. I encourage you to go in search of posts based on tags that touch your heart. Leave a word of encouragement or a compliment. You never know the profound impact such a small gesture that doesn’t cost you more than some keystrokes in a few seconds can do. ❤
