It’s Beginning to Look a Lot like…?
This time of year sucks
I love this time of year
Ooh lights and decorations
You might hear or say some of these words this time of year. It can be a time of high emotion. A time of excitement and joy or sadness and depression.
The best gifts you can give everyone you see are RESPECT and KINDNESS.
If the cheery over the top Christmas carol singing person annoys you. So what! They still deserve respect and kindness.
If you are that carol-loving person, keep singing, but share some kindness for those who do not feel the same way.
Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up with all the lights and decorations and to become lost in your own thoughts, but try to remember those around you.
Seeing decorations everywhere you go can be hard, especially if you are not someone who celebrates Christmas. Every store you walk into you are overwhelmingly reminded that what you believe is the minority.
If you or someone you know suffers from depression you may just want this time to fly by unnoticed no matter what you believe in.
For the rest of this year, when you go out to eat or shop, remember that everyone has his or her own thoughts, feelings and beliefs. Everyone is experiencing this season in different ways. There is no way to know everyone’s situations.
The thing that unites us all is that we are all human. We can be kind and give our respect to everyone we encounter.
