Be the person that always lends a helping hand! It's good karma, right? Be the person who takes leaps and bounds to assist others? It will most definitely come back to you, right? Be the person who offers a listening ear. Surely, someone will listen to you when you need to vent, right? Be the one who offers sound advice. You will most definitely be able to ask for some when you need it, right? Be the person who at least tries to understand the frustrated friend when they can't even make sense of what's going on around them. Because someone will most definitely have patience with you and try to understand your fury of frustration, right? Be the friend who can sense when something is wrong with your bestie or your pal and will just sit with them, with words unspoken, just your presence. Because that moment you need a silent presence, someone will rush to your side, right?
Nine times out of ten, if you are the rescuer, you probably will never have anyone to rescue you. And by rescue, I mean at least one of the above mentioned situations. Who stops in their tracks for you? Who will come and sit by your side and just let you vent or cry, or just be with you in silence when you are having the worst of worst days? Anyone? Anyone? What do you do when you need rescuing? What do you do when you are exhausted, money is low, mentally and spiritually drained, or just down and out? Of course, most will say pray about it or meditate or just pick yourself up by your boot straps and keep it moving. But have we forgotten how important human help is? How good it feels to have someone simply be by your side in times of need or struggle? Have we become so desensitized to human emotion that we miss out on unspoken words and indirect actions that could potentially save someone's life?
If you have ever been "rescued", when was the last time you made a conscious decision to help rescue someone else? How attentive are you to those around you? I get it, we all have our own issues and problems. We all have our own responsibilities that we have to tend to and cannot stop at the drop of a dime to assist others but when you know of someone that is constantly a helper or a " rescuer" of sorts, take a moment to return the favor. You never know how you could be changing a day for the better or even saving a life!
