Sometimes all you need is a hug. Let someone know it’s going to be ok and give them a hug, or a simple touch on the shoulder. Things aren’t as bad as you think they are. There are many blessings around you and all your cups will be filled shortly. Hang in a little longer.
It’s amazing how far the power of touch can uplift another person. Whither you’re the one needing the hug, or the one who can give it, share your strength with compassion and caring. A simple hug can let someone know they’re not alone and they’re facing the trials on their path in solitude. Even those with partners can feel segregated or pushed aside. A touch on the shoulder, a pat on the back or even a simple holding of the hand to show caring and concern can be an immeasurable gift to someone who needs it.
If you’re the one needing the hug; don’t let the stress of being responsible weigh you down. Those that attempt to rise up and be accountable for their actions will discover rewards in the end. It’s easy to feel the burdens in hard times. But you have overcome more than you realize. You have survived through the thick and thin. You will over come the current stresses and you will succeed. Believe in yourself and let the worry fall by the wayside.
