Yesterday in my daily readings I came across some good thoughts on encouraging others. The concept was that anyone you passed throughout any day could be carrying invisible signs that say “Encourage Me.” I often feel this when I come across older people wandering alone in shopping centers, or younger people who are struggling with their studies. Sometimes it is people the same age as me struggling with where exactly they want their life to go.
All I know is this. If you see someone, and you can see in their face that they are struggling with something…whether you know them or not. You can always find something encouraging to say. You can see what kind of Joy you might be able to bring to their day, and slightly push them out of whatever is so troubling. Humble yourselves, remember that we all struggle and out of your experiences help others too.
Encouraging words should come naturally. Whether is a simple “You’ve got this!” or an in-depth conversation see what you can bring to the situation…Big or Small.
