Just Kindness helps
.
When someone is feeling bad & you don’t really know why but you can see they are acting in a way that you don’t understand, or even a behaviour that you dont like, you dont have to react right away, u can take a step back, try not to judge this on u, this has nothing to do with u, they are going through something in their way, they are trying, they just need you to see they’re not ok and be kind, you don’t have to fix them, your not responsable for their story but be kind.
.
Kindness could be. (Depending on the situation)
.
A glance at them with a smile
Just listening to them
Not reacting back with anger
Asking ’ is there anything I can do?’
Saying ‘hi’
.
I think people do see someone in some kind of mental & physical pain & just don’t know what to do.
.
If at that point you decide to get angry or frustrated and you say something in snap judgement because you don’t know what to do, you’ll make the other person feel bad like they are wrong. But if you decide that there’s nothing you need to DO but you just maybe need to acknowledge them with a smile, listen and be kind you will just be validating their feelings and that’s enough.
.
Becoming aware of your own reaction will help you emensly, taking a step back and thinking ‘maybe this person is not ok’! Will help with the way you come across, and in turn change the whole situation.
.
When anyone is going though an emotion or a bad time of it, including yourself, unless you tell them they have no idea right? I mean a person may see you’re down but they have no idea right? They cant tell whats happened just by looking at you.
Well it’s the same with mental health, anxiety, depression etc u don’t know, what’s been happening in their life, they could be homeless, could have just lost someone close, could have anxiety, u don’t know how they feel & everyone is different we don’t all show it the same way, some are quite, some are very vocal, some will cry some will shout etc
.
Try to be aware that this person may not be ok, just be kind that’s all, thats the most helpful thing & you will need the same one day, you’ll be the start of the kind
