Until You Feel It

Reaching out to another person does not seem like a good work.

Until you have felt alone.

When you have felt the pain of isolation and loneliness, and then someone reaches out to you, it is life-giving. A text to ask how you are doing can open a window into your soul. A call where someone shows interest in you can fill your heart with gladness. A visit from someone shows you that your life matters to others.

We often underestimate the simplest of actions that connect us with other people. We do until we have been on the other side, and then we understand the weight of human contact.

Your attempt to connect with someone could be blown off and appear meaningless to some; it could also be a ray of light into a dark world for others.
