You are here....get involved!

Clients often present themselves to me saying they feel worthless, as if there is no point to their existence.  Well I believe each and every one of us has something we can give others and we often don't have to try too hard to achieve this.  Perhaps by writing a letter to someone you've not been in touch with for a while makes a bigger difference to them than you are aware - maybe a simple random act of kindness warms the heart of the recipient making them smile and reinforcing their belief that there are more good people in the world than bad.
Handing in a bag of clothes to a charity shop, offering to walk the neighbours dog, picking up some groceries for someone who isn't as able as you.  Being human and sharing with our fellow man makes you worth more... not less!  You do exist, and that means you are worthy.  Stop getting stuck in the headmind belief that if it's not got bells and whistles on it it is somehow a meaningless life.  The greatest lives, the people who make the biggest differences are often quietly getting on with it in the background, not glory hunters, just good people, sharing and lovingly appreciative of the simple fact that they are here and able to gently make a difference.
