Serves You Right!
Soup it up.
I have always heard the same myths every year, more suicides happen during the holidays than any other time of year. People, that's just not true! Even I was a victim to this mass rumor, that was thought to actually be a fact by even myself. We might sit at home some years and feel sorry for ourselves but things could be much worse. Society is highly aware of that notion as well, however that doesn't mean there's not that moment to ourselves where we sit and cry during that holiday season. For some reason, it just happens. I found that when I feel exceptionally terrible reaching out to help other people makes me feel better. Not family or friends but, perfect strangers. I say this because family and friends are graced with your presence all the time, you should already be giving them everything. If your not, than your taking advantage of that relationship. Anyways, I tend to get a little lonely during the holidays, so I do random acts of kindness.
It comes back.
I'll give you an example, today I went to the Sprint store with my dad. There was a young gentleman who was there before we got there. However, they didn't have number to call people you had to wait in line and hope the person in front of you doesn't take too long. He was behind a couple who was taking a very long time and they were getting comfortable, there were not going anywhere any time soon. So, I got my dad to get out out line and we let him go in front of us. The awesome part was is that, he only took about 15 minutes. Now people, please this is not about the reward. Use your judgement, analyze look at their situation not their personality. I know it's hard but I mean we all have off days, especially when we need an angel right? Think about it, wouldnt you want a random act of kindness on your worst day, where you just can't give anyone any sunshine. Could you imagine someone giving you a break like that? Well, give it to someone else.
Get in the habit.
It's the thought that counts, and back to my original point. It helps to do random act of kindness for strangers, just make sure they need help and your not just hitting on them! That goes either way, there's a satisfaction of warmness you get from the community around you when you give to those around you. Like a support system, we focus on the fact that we don't have a boyfriend or husband but we just have to focus on the community as a whole. To embrace someone else, giving you validation that someone might do the same for you.
