Yes, it is true. Words hurt. Words can affect you. Please be kind.
Too many times in my life I sacrificed myself for others. I am not saying this is wrong. I am not saying this is bad. I am saying that doing so took a lot from me; emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. We all have scars from our selfless sacrifices. I am not alone in this pain. You are not alone. Continue to help. Continue to love. Continue to serve. Continue to hope.
Dreams can become reality. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Don’t be afraid to reach out to those who are suffering.
