Your support does help
"We do no great things - only small things with great love" Mother Teresa
Our emotional security does not always rely on what we are given, but in how much we appreciate what we already have.
Care and Consideration
In today's world people can feel they are living in a divided society, and there is a strong tendency to get so caught up in our own insecurities, that we take for granted those who care about us most.
Many of us are lucky enough to have a very special place in the heart of our family, even if we do find them interfering or frustrating at times, yet how many of us really appreciate the unconditional affection we are given by our partners, parents and siblings?
We all belong somewhere, but for some people this world is not a kind and considerate place, and there are those who find themselves lost in a wilderness of cruelty and mistrust, longing for the protection and support of a family that loves them for who they are, and really cares for their wellbeing and safety.
Feelings of isolation are often bred from insecurity, and the world is a lonely place for those who find themselves unable to nurture others or even themselves.
Yet true emotional security is born from appreciating what we have, without feeling reliant upon others for our happiness, and finding joy in what we can give rather than receive. We all have something wonderful about us that we can share with others, so why not begin by learning to appreciate and nurture the good points about yourselves as well?
A country and its people belong together, and if we find ourselves disillusioned by the example set by our leaders, at least we can try to live as true examples of a caring and considerate nation?
After all, we are all part of the same human family, and all linked to each other, however good or bad we consider this to be. So perhaps those of us who have a loving home and friends, can pass on some of this influence to those who have not been so lucky?
