I was asked a question recently after spending a great deal of time helping someone with a problem they just couldn’t understand. It was.. challenging and I’ll be honest, very annoying because it was really simple. Eventually I found a way to help them understand thankfully.
Afterwards I was asked why I bothered, “it wasn’t worth my time” or in other words, that person wasn’t worth helping.
Every time we give of ourselves we aren’t lessened, quite the opposite in fact. Each time I do something for someone else a little more of me grows, a little more of me spreads out over the world and influences others. I’m going viral! It made me think, what kind of virus do I want to be?
It is never going to be wrong to use your time making someone else feel valued. It’s never going to be a waste to help someone with something they can’t do by themselves.
Love can be seen as a virus. It shares and multiplies. Showing one person respect gives them the self worth to feel valuable to others and to treat them as equals too spreading the virus further.
If we all strive to treat others decently then eventually our voices will be heard across the world. We’ll infect more and more people daily. Long after we’re gone our virus will still be here, whispering in the breeze of happiness.
I don’t know if this will happen, I would like to think it will but I do know this – it won’t happen unless it starts with me. I plan on being infectious and absolutely antibiotic resistant!
