Reach Out

We can all be healers when we reach out to others who need human kindness and compassion.

I worked in a nursing home for a year and a half, and to say the least, it changed my life forever. I realized that no matter how old we are, we keep our personalities, our interests, our feelings, and our need for other people. I would watch people drop Grandma off at the nursing home then only visit once a month, if that. Grandma would slowly wilt. Five minutes of undivided attention and her entire day would be brightened, and that is no exaggeration.

Love and attention are truly underrated when it comes to human beings. We seem to walk around with this idea that we don't need anyone, but we are pack animals. We need eachother. We can heal eachother.
