This legit just made me tear up. I've always put aside my own depression to help other people.

Well that’s what makes me happy no matter what I go through seeing “you” smile or a stranger happy or helped brings joy to my life

Thank you for this. I really needed to say this to my kid today.

to all the people who are like this I am giving you a huge air hug, everyone can use a little up lift, it costs nothing but a few seconds and some actual thought and kindness

❤️❤️ I work with kids and whenever I feel down I try to remember that there are a bunch of children in my community that think I’m the nicest, funniest, prettiest person and they can’t wait to get hugs from me. Plus with each kid there’s a whole family behind them who credits me with helping their kids learn to talk. It’s so easy to get caught up in the bad and forget your actual real impact

Sorry to hear you had to go through that. Experiencing that continued abuse even during the breakup, at least that shows you you did the right thing. Grow tall, u/fucking_fantastic! Fly and be happy!

I'm kind of a ballbuster but people laugh so thank you for this. I feel better.

My Mother said, always be kind especially to strangers. We never really know what they may be going through. I took that to heart, even just a smile lifts people.

Exactly we keep on seeing the qualities of others and comparing ourselves that i don't have those qualities. And in the midst of that we forget what we have, what we are and what we can do..🫠

Thank you. I needed this

I wish that were true. I'm basically a black hole of happiness, sucking it in and giving out the barest minimum of hawking radiation.

Yes, I am! I just got a year older, fully into middle age now. And last year, my wife left me. AND I've had clinical depression & anxiety since adolescence.

But I teach music lessons. And its the greatest thing ever. I love it and mu students really like me. It is truely a wonderful thing to do that I will continue to do forever!

Text: Some of you are unaware of just how amazing you really are. The way you make people laugh, lift others up, or spread some extra love. You do this even though you are struggling too, and I think it makes you such a beautiful human being.

I would rather people recognize my skill set less than a handful of people have but those people are my favorite by far

You know that’s a good one but no matter how much euros you have, you can’t buy anything in the US with that.
