why is there so much hurt in the world today? We all have been through some kind of hurt. People see someone who is different, that is all people can see that someone is different, it doesn’t matter if it’s little different; so what does it really matter how different we are . Does it? People make fun of others who are different; why? Difference is what makes us special . Everyone of us is special.
Who is a hero?
Is a hero someone who fights for freedom or can heroes also be the person who gives their life up to help others? Being a hero means more than going to war; though it is a big sacrifice to leave the life you to go somewhere with not knowing if you will get the life you once had. Someone who has always put others first is whom I would think of a hero as well.
Life is nothing if you have nobody to share with. No-matter if the relationship is just a close friend, any kind of relationship is important! We all need to have someone who we can let anything out knowing that person will never let you down. When life really has you down having that friendship can help just to have someone to get you thought it.

5 Ways to Make Anyone Feel Special
Spread the warmth, for their sake and yours.
Published on July 19, 2014 by Isadora Alman, MFT in Sex & Sociability
ShutterstockIn a new relationship or one seasoned by time, for a female or male friend or relative, young or old, same sex or other, the desire to feel appreciated is universal, and the means of showing that you care are available to everyone. Is there someone you would like to please, someone whom you would love to have think of you warmly? Choose one of the following. Heck, choose ALL of the following. I promise you the deed will be worth the doing:
Give small “just-for-you” presents. Whether it’s a candy bar you know the other likes or a paperback book you found at a garage sale, it really is all about the adage that it’s the thought that counts.
Make it a point to slightly touch him or her often. Nothing intimate; just an enthusiastic hug of pleasure when you greet or part; a casual touch on the shoulder as you pass; a friendly squeeze of the arm as you walk side-by-side. Many studies have shown the power of touch to boost people’s mood and sense of connection; one paper found that even the most fleeting touch of the fingers when a librarian returned a reader’s card made the customer remember the library visit as a more pleasant experience (thought without ever realizing why).
Share a warm memory of the other person with him or her. I was thinking the other day about the time I saw you… Knowing that you are noticed, remembered, or thought of, is wonderfully flattering to anyone.
Make something. Whatever your talent, employ it to create something that will make someone feel special and appreciated. If you can cook, invite the friend for a home-cooked dinner or tea with your own baked treat. Such gestures are long-remembered: A man in my life long ago made me a meal that had almonds in everything—the salad, the main dish, and the dessert, all because I casually mentioned when we first met that I liked them. Needless to say, the fact that he took such a casual comment to heart impressed me even more than the meal. Similarly, a folded paper crane made by a young relative just learning origami has had pride of place on my desk for more than a year and always makes me smile.
Plan an event. A friend once picked me up at work for an arranged lunch date and brought a blanket and packed basket for a picnic with everything—including (chocolate-covered) ants, an experience in themselves! What might have been a rushed workday meal in a crowded food court became a memorable event. This was almost 50 years ago. How many lunches have I eaten with friends in the intervening years I couldn’t guess but this one stands out and so does the person who arranged it.
Many times over our lives, hopefully, we have been made to feel special through such gestures as these. We should all hope that we have spread as much warmth around through our own thoughtful acts, and will continue to do so, as well.
Some people who have depression just need to feel loved and supported. Having a friend that they know they can always turn to who will be there to talk anytime.
Behind the Smile
“His poetry is lyrical, tender and profoundly moving…It is how those of us with depression live; adrift in the dark depths but forever struggling to the sunlit shallows.” Sally Brampton, author of Shoot the Damn Dog.
At Depression Alliance we’re celebrating the latest critically acclaimed anthology from poet Stan Frith, who tragically lost his son Jason after a four year battle with depression. With all profits from the book being donated to our life-saving work, Behind the Smile explores themes of love, shame and our understanding of life, and is a must-read for all families affected by depression. Buy a copy today from the JustGiving page and let’s end the loneliness and isolation of depression together.
Whether it’s by accident or it was fate,
this friend becomes real and truly a gift.
Friendship that could change us,
a friendship that can go through challenges,
long distance but still have a strong friendship.
Nothing has changed!
Nothing could could come between us!
“Your life is in your hands. No matter where you are now, no matter
what has happened in your life, you can begin to consciously choose your thoughts, and you can change your life. There is no such thing as a hopeless situation. Every single circumstance of
your life can change!” – The Secret”
”I think of you day and night. All my dreams are about you. All my fantasies are about you. You are in all my love poems and all my love songs. I feel you in every love story I read. I can never stop loving you and no situation in my life can stop me from loving you. If I get a billion dollars I would build a dream house for you and me. If I get to go on a tour around the world I would take you with me to fall in love with you in every nook and corner of the world.. If I could have a superpower I would time freeze the moment when you kiss me. If I get to time travel I would take you with me in my past lives and fall in love with you all over again. AND even if I die I will be born again to love you all over again…. Aarti Khurana”
Don’t we all wish that this kind of love wasn’t so hard to find? I am thinking about this as we should have this kind of love and support for everybody in our lives.

Frustration can set you back. Evolve past it.

you’re minding your own business. You’ve taken all due precautions. You haven’t had a mental lapse. You’ve been responsible and conscientious. You haven’t hurt anyone, or done anything wrong.
And then, out of the blue, someone at the supermarket abruptly turns into your aisle, sneezes in your face—and you end up with the flu. Or, while dutifully following a traffic signal, you stop at a light that just turned red—and are promptly rear-ended. Or you meticulously plan a family reunion picnic—only to have the occasion ruined by a most unseasonable, never-forecast thunderstorm. Or, jogging at twilight, listening to your iPod, you trip on a barely visible sidewalk crack—and fracture an ankle. Or your broker, who came highly recommended by trustworthy friends, crafts a portfolio of equities, all of which turn out to be duds.
Hi Everyone, as you know I have started a group for live a life of love within yourself; I’m hoping that the group will let my followers feel comfortable about talking to me and or other people who in this group. If you don’t feel comfortable, you can send me a facebook message. I really would love to get my idea of helping people thought depression or even people who just need someone to talk to. I know this might sound kind of crazy; but this is my dream to help those in this world who feel alone, worthless, hopeless and unloved. This is my mission, I want to give back hope and I want to show everyone that love is everything.
Do something now that will make the person you’ll be tomorrow proud to have been the person you are today. -unknown
