Today’s Mental moment –
depsite the obvious of being late and not mid afternoon, – not even where I am,
Is an important one, with a deep message.
I like to do these on Fridays because then you think on it for the entire weekend. (that sounded really good huh?)
It illustrates how greatly patience, willingness to compromise and the effort to adapt, can make a huge difference in …someone’s life.
We all have things we are good at and we have things that we can give everything we have to, and just not quite get it.
Sometimes it may be something that affects another persons life and makes what they do more difficult.
I would imagine that working with, having a friendship or relationship with someone who has a mental illness might be something that would make another, mentally healthy person’s life a little bit harder.
Sometimes a lot harder.
After awhile, you may think that it would be easier to just throw in the towel and … give up on the person with the mental illness.
Even though you know they are trying as hard as they can to be …. good.
Taking a moment to step back and assess the situation and adapting on your part, compromising perhaps to allow for the person, instead of leaving them, can make all the difference in the world to someone who is mentally ill and only wants to be loved and accepted and appreciated.
Just like everyone else.
If they are trying – isn’t it worth trying too?
Something to think about.
Have a wonderful weekend! Don’t drink Green Beer too fast.. have a shot of Irish whiskey in between rounds.
Lizzie Cracked (not broken) and not always able to get it right. But I really really try.
