Put Your Hand Out

Everyone has their ups and downs in life, especially downs. Whenever we fall down, the main thing to do is to get back up and keep going. For some people, getting back up isn’t their option. They would rather stay down and feel bad about themselves. That’s where you can step in. Sometimes all it takes is a single hand. When people fall, they struggle to get back up and you can help them. All you have to do is put your hand out and bring them back to their feet.

Not everyone has the strength to overcome their lowest periods. Most people would remain upset with themselves. Remain depressed. Remain with low self-esteem. You can change that with the power of kindness. You can change that with your own hands. Whenever someone’s talking about how depressed they are or how they can’t be happy, that’s where you stick your hand out and say, “I’ll help you.”

I had this in mind as I constantly see people in their lowest periods of life. Now at first I would leave it as I would think, “It’s okay. They’ll be back on their feet in no time.” Oh boy would I be wrong at times. It’s sad that people would fall and can’t find the courage, the strength to get back up. It literally sickens me. No one should feel that way. Ever. Then I start to realize that all these people need is a hand. A single hand. THE hand of guidance. If I could just reach my hand out and say that I could help them, maybe that could make a huge difference in that person’s life. It could probably make a difference for anyone’s lives.

If you see someone down, put your hand out. If you see someone who has signs of depression, put your hand out. If you see someone who completely has had enough, put your hand out. Hell if you just want to do something kind for people around you, put your hand out and surprise them. Putting your hand could make a big difference for anyone. Deep down that person needs it and you can be the guidance they can have. Everyday this stuff goes on and you can see how a person’s hand changed another person’s life.

Always be kind and do the right thing. Always help those who really need it. Always share your love with others. They might not think that they need it, but trust me they do. How do you do it? Very simple gesture to do: put your hand out. Become a life changer in a matter of seconds.
