quote_the real things are simple_laura ingalls wilder

 

This video will lift your spirits, make you tear up (especially if you are an empathetic person), and restore your faith in humanity.  It is hard to simplify the concept of Empathy in its broadest sense, but this video will fill your heart and spirit with gladness and a desire to help another.  There are battles that we each face, and most of us do it alone, or struggle in silence.  As you watch this video, and see the faces of the recipients of this kind of compassion and charity towards others, you will see how starved for compassion and a helping hand during daily struggles.  Challenges can cause mental and physical health symptoms, but kindness and empathy create such powerful healing.

Simply acknowledging our humanity, and restoring our faith in the inherent goodness of some people, gives us the strength to keep going when we have witnessed or felt pain.  It is a blessing to know that such people exist and seek opportunities to do good for others and the inspiration to pay it forward.

    That was beautiful! Thank you for the uplifting energy that you put into this post. Have a wonderful day!

    • You too!! I am so glad that I have gotten to see your posts now too. Someone shared this with me and I found it to be so special. I think we need to have our humanity restored. 🙂

  1. Thank you for always uplifting us with your posts 🙂 Love and Hugs

  2. How could one not shed a tear after watching that? Here’s one for you https://youtu.be/ogKxFY6W_MY

  3. Do you think people can be passively empathetic? Is there a way we present ourselves that distances ourselves from each other, and how could we present ourselves so we encourage connection?

    • Interesting question. I don’t know that passive empathy exists, at least, not to my personal situation. While it is instinctual, do be empathetic is reaching outside of yourself to others, and that is active. Passive to me would mean that you don’t acknowledge another and therefore don’t make a connection. JMHO 🙂

  4. Thanks for sharing that quote – the simple pleasures are often the most satisfying I find. I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and my poem today is about the healing power of tears in case you have time to look? Have a sunny day, Sam 🙂
