“Your job is not to judge. Your job is not to figure out if someone deserves something. Your job is to lift the fallen, to restore the broken, and to heal the hurting.”Joel Osteen
May you never be the reason why someone who
loves to sing, doesn’t anymore.
Or why someone who dressed so differently, now wears standard clothing.
Or why someone who always spoke so vividly of their dreams, is now silent or solemn about them.
May you never be the reason for someone giving up on a part of themselves because you were demotivating, non-appreciative or, even worse, sarcastic about it.
On the flip side though… you may also never know how you inspired someone to believe that they could, when they were doubting if they can.
Uplifted them, when their confidence was low, insecurities weighing them down.
Encouraged them to keep going, when perhaps they were just about to quit.
Or caused them to smile amidst their darkest moments, as they were wondering if they would ever again feel the light of day or the warmth of the sun.
We can be all silent killers – but also silent heroes.
When you are kind and true and authentically YOU, you unknowingly give others the courage they need to, also, be themselves.
