Just Be Kind...

I had a friend respond to my Mental Health and Me blog post with this comment and I wanted to share it with you all because it really touched me.

"Trish this is so lovely and so very very brave of you. I plucked up the courage to do something similar recently and I have been knocked down by some people and so I deleted the posts. Sometimes it helps just putting things down right so why can others not see that? I don't want to talk to a support worker, I want to talk to my family and friends. I know I should delete the texts they sent me but I can't right now. I am hurting too much. Trying not to clam up again here. Just want to show people what it is like to be me. is that so wrong? Thank goodness for four legged friends, oh no wait, I am even damaging him with my love and being over protective. The anger is coming out now! 😥😡😤"

It hurt to read this as I care deeply for this woman. She jas been through such a hard time recently and needs support. Sadly, she hasn't found that in these people. Why can't we just be kind to one another? Why do we feel the need to put others down? It isn't right. You don't know how low someone is feeling and one unkind word could do so much damage. Please just think before you speak and remember your words can hurt or they can heal...

What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
