Sometimes you need to sit back say nothing and just listen… Shhhhhhhh…
Try it! Calm your mind.
Why? Because if you listen closely and you’re not just lining up to speak next, you can hear so much more!
You can hear the sadness the loneliness of so many people around you. All trying their hardest not to let their guard down.
But you’re still, and you’re finally listening. They can’t hide. You’re hearing them for the first time.
*peace and sadness in one breath*
Can you imagine that?
So do we actually listen to someone? OR ARE WE ALL JUST LINING UP TO HAVE OUR SAY????????
Depression is so much more than being lonely or sad or whatever. It’s deep and cutting to your very soul. We try to hide, not wanting people to see what’s really going on.
When Depression has you in its grip how easy it is to block everything else out around you?!
Breathing in and out, again! How easy is it for tears to just roll down your face. WHY? Because we hold onto so many things, and suffer in silence!
You don’t need to cry out loud because you’re already bleeding tears on the inside.
Don’t be afraid! Stop hiding! You need to just let it out! Get rid of it! And know it will soon pass!!
Breathe away the disappointment the pain the sadness the feeling of never feeling good enough etc… Get rid of it all!!!!
It’s like a poison and you don’t need it eating you from the inside out.
Having depression and crying all the time serves us no purpose!
We need to slow down take a deep breath and try put things back into perspective!
Work through one problem at a time. Remember – Rome wasn’t built in a day!
If you know someone suffering in silence and don’t know how to approach the subject, just go and put your arms around them and let them know you’re there! You have no idea how much that will help them!!!
Do you ever just stop and listen?
