It’s Sunday… just felt I should write something to maybe get people to reflect a little.
We have had a nice couple of days, talking, laughing and reminiscing with family. And I got to thinking quite deeply about life after seeing someone who has been diagnosed with Vascular dementia – don’t worry I’m not gonna scare you all off with some deep and meaningful “What’s the meaning of life” speech 🙂
I put myself in their shoes and looked at the world differently and it made me sad to think how people are treated when people don’t take the time to stop and listen and look at things from a different perspective, that’s all.
I have had my own Mental Health demons in the past but I am lucky, and I know I am lucky. But I could not imagine the pain of trying to fight with the mind trying to remember things and people …it’s bad enough when I have a brain block (and yes I can hear my friend saying -“it’s your hormones! we’re at THAT time of life! – she knows who she is!)
“Be Kind, for everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about”
Quite a powerful statement don’t you think? Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 🙂
